Accounting and Finance
Accountants are probably best known for checking the validity of company accounts – auditing – but they also devise and operate financial systems, conduct investment analysis, advise on business start-ups, company takeovers and company rescue schemes, and handle individuals' and corporations' tax affairs.
This programme has been developed to respond to the needs and expectations of the modern accountancy profession. You will be supported to develop the confidence and skills you need to follow the path that most interests you.
Economics examines some of the profound issues in our life and times, including: economic growth and sustainable development, emerging market economies, financial and monetary crises, environmental and natural resource problems, international trade and aid to poor countries.
Year in industry
As part of this degree, you take a compulsory paid business placement between your second and final years. The placement runs for at least 44 weeks and starts between June and September, following your second-year examinations. Placements help develop your skills and knowledge and aid your final year of study.
It is possible to take this as a three-year programme, without the Year in Industry. See Accounting and Finance and Economics BSc (Hons).
