This course is delivered by the AACSB-accredited Business School, an accreditation which places us within the top institutions globally for business degrees. Less than 5% of business schools worldwide have attained this hallmark of excellence which recognises a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching and student learning.
Our Accounting & Finance degree will give you an excellent working knowledge of these twin disciplines as well as a crucial grounding in business studies – providing you with the financial expertise, analytical skills, and strategic insight needed to pursue a career in the financial sector.
Top-performing students on this course will have the opportunity to obtain the ICAEW’s Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business in their final year. We are one of only a few UK universities able to offer this.
One of the key features of this degree is its flexibility; all the first year units are the same, giving you flexibility to transfer to another pathway and specialise in your second and final year. You’ll also have the option to study abroad at one of our international partner institutions during the second semester of the second year. Currently we have partners in Australia, Canada and Europe.
In year three you can complete a 30-week placement at home or abroad, to add real-world context to the theoretical framework forged in the classroom. You’ll also gain invaluable experience and create a network of professional contacts.
What’s more, our course is accredited by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, the Charted Institute of Management Accountants and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales. If that wasn’t enough, because our accounting and finance degrees offer exemptions for accountancy qualifications, upon graduating you may not have to take all the exams required to become a Chartered Accountant.
92% of our final year students said they have been able to contact staff when they needed to. Join us on live chat now to find out more, register to meet us at an Open Day, or watch an online presentation to find out more about this course.
