University of Wolverhampton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This award equips you with the relevant skills and knowledge to pursue a career in accountancy, finance, banking and a wide range of management roles.
The programme has been designed specifically to provide you with maximum exemptions from internationally recognised accounting professional body examinations, giving you a head start when it comes to qualifying as an accountant. In addition to your academic studies, you will also be trained in the use of accounting software, analytical skills and report writing and further employability skills which will enable you to better adapt to the rapidly changing environment of work.
The foundation year of this course is designed to offer applicants who do not have the required qualifications, a programme which will equip them with a robust toolkit of academic, digital and personal skills required for successful study in higher education. It also provides an understanding of, and insight into, a range of disciplines that underpin their chosen programme of study. In the foundation year students will develop their ability to gain the most out of structured in-class study, and also to manage and evaluate their own independent learning. This wide range of transferable skills is of immense value in both undergraduate study and graduate employment. Upon successful completion of the foundation year, students will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of their subject area to degree level.
All students have the opportunity to take an optional placement year providing valuable workplace experience and significantly improving your employability on graduation. In addition, during your studies you will have the opportunity to meet with accounting and business practitioners through guest lectures and other special events.
The University of Wolverhampton has recently partnered with ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) in their Accelerate programme which allows final year students an accelerated path to ACCA membership, enhanced career prospects, discounted fees, access to the global ACCA community to provide practical assistance with studies and future career.

The degree can also be used as the basis for postgraduate study. For example, the Business School has an MSc in Professional Accounting and Finance which provides an opportunity for you to both complete your ACCA qualifications and also gain a Masters in Accounting and Finance within an eighteen month period. You will be in a unique position of having an excellent academic and professional qualification taught by market leaders in both fields. You will have the knowledge and ability to succeed in the world of finance
