University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This degree extends our three-year BSc course to four years, with your third year spent studying accounting and finance in English at a university abroad, before returning to Bristol for your final year. The course combines the challenging, broad academic content of all our accounting degrees with an overseas dimension that reflects the international nature of modern business. To join this degree, you will apply initially to BSc Accounting and Finance. During your first year you can put yourself forward for consideration for the 'with Study Abroad' course. Places are allocated depending on first-year examination results. Years one and two cover underpinning material in financial accounting, management accounting, finance and applied quantitative research methods, as well as the option to choose modules in economics, business law, management, taxation and a variety of open units from across the University. You will spend year three studying modules in accounting and finance at a partner institution overseas, taught in English. Currently, we have links with universities in continental Europe, Australia, South Korea and Singapore. Find out more about opportunities to study overseas at Global Opportunities. You will return to Bristol for your fourth year to study the disciplines of accounting and finance in more depth. We offer a variety of options, allowing you to focus on the areas that are most interesting to you. We vary these options from time to time according to developments in the sector. Popular units to date have included Financial Crises and Financial Statement Analysis and new units in 2019 included Accounting and Finance in Context, and Social Accounting.
