From professional accountancy to finance, from banking to insurance, this course could be a stepping-stone to a career in an exciting profession. We’ll give you the chance to get a good overview of all areas of accountancy and finance to help improve your employability in your chosen field.
Every business asks different things of its accountants and finance experts. You could end up being responsible for cash flow, or carrying out financial audits, for example. So we’ll start by giving you a thorough grounding in all areas of finance, before offering you the chance to specialise in particular areas.
You’ll get a real feel for what’s behind any successful organisation – how it’s financed and managed. You’ll also be taught by a range of people who have strong academic backgrounds and experience in the professional world.
You’ll have access to experts from some of the leading accounting firms in the UK. You’ll also be able to connect with other leading international, national and local accounting firms thanks to our innovative Partners in Accountancy scheme.* It’s all designed to help you to develop your professional knowledge and your employability.
In your third year we’ll give you the opportunity to take a placement year that could see you working in a business.
Our courses provide you with a range of professional exemptions from the main accountancy bodies, including the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) and the Association of International Accountants (AIA).
*Our Partners in Accountancy initiative is designed to give you an exceptional start to your accountancy career. In the Huddersfield and Leeds area we currently have nine firms taking part: RSM, BDO, Grant Thornton, Wheawill and Sudworth, KPMG, Kirk Newsholme, PwC, Revell Ward and Simpson Wood.
The partnership builds on established links with many of the firms and has been warmly received by the accountants. The firms will offer accountancy students direct input to their studies from leading case studies on technical and professional areas and providing careers support.
