Course Details

BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance - Accelerated 2 Year Programme

Our Accounting and Finance degree is designed for students who would like to pursue a career in finance, particularly if you have an interest in the field of accounting. The course allows you to study at an accelerated pace, meaning you can complete your Accounting and Finance degree in just two years.

We want to make sure that you complete this course with confidence in your skills and the ability to step out into the working world, or pursue further study. That’s why we have tailored your studies to ensure you will acquire the knowledge and skills employers are looking for, along with a strong understanding of the current practices and topics in modern accounting and finance.

This course is recognised by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants. Upon successful completion of the course, you will be exempt from nine ACCA papers. You would then have only 4 Strategic Professional Level papers left to write to fully qualify as a member of the ACCA, which can be achieved within just one year of finishing the course. In effect, motivated students can qualify as a Chartered Certified Accountant (i.e. ACCA member) within just 3 years on our accelerated Accounting and Finance degree, as opposed to 4 or 5 years on our non-accelerated course.
