Accounting and Finance at UCLan has accreditation from a number of prestigious professional bodies, including the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). You’ll develop your intellectual capacity, analytical skills and have a strong knowledge and understanding of accounting, enabling you to work in audit, tax and accountancy businesses as well as in financial functions within other organisations.

Put theory into practice in a professional business environment by taking advantage of the optional 48-week industry paid placement in a company based in the UK or overseas. You will also have the option to study a semester/year abroad or take your second year at our Cyprus campus. We also offer an International Travel Bursary Fund paying for you to take part in week-long international visits. Undertaking a placement year is invaluable and provides a practical introduction to business which will benefit you upon your return to study and also increase your employability upon graduation.
