University of Lincoln has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Lincoln’s Accountancy and Finance degree aims to equip students with a vocationally relevant and academically rigorous education in a programme which also offers the opportunity for exemptions from elements of examination for a number of the professional accountancy bodies. The programme provides the chance to develop practical and theoretical skills in both the nature and mechanics of financial information.
This course provides students with the opportunity to develop the critical-thinking skills, knowledge and problem-solving abilities that are needed by senior leaders and decision-makers in business. The ability to reflect critically on their role, both as private individuals and as members of society is also considered.
In addition to an introduction to accountancy and finance, the first year introduces students to key elements of business. The second year builds on this foundation with financial accountancy, management accountancy, financial management and economics in addition to specialist options, including audit. The opportunity to develop skills in SAGE accounting are embedded within the programme during second year. In the final year, students have the opportunity to examine financial accountancy, financial management and management accountancy at an advanced level and can tailor their degree by selecting from a range of options aligned to individual interests and career ambitions.
