Why Accountancy and Finance?
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 accounting and 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.
How will you learn?
You will learn through practical application and delivered lectures, workshops, seminars and group work sessions.
Here at Huddersfield, you'll be taught by some of the best lecturers in the country. We've been the English university with the highest proportion of professionally qualified teaching staff for three years running.*
You’ll be able to connect with leading accounting firms thanks to our Partners in Accountancy scheme.
The Partners in Accountancy firms will offer accountancy and finance students direct input to their studies from leading case studies on technical and professional areas and providing careers support.
- In your third year we’ll give you the opportunity to take a placement year that could see you working in a business.
