Course Details

BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance

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.

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.

Foundation Year

You can choose to take an additional Foundation Year before you start this course. This introductory year focuses on developing the key skills required to study at degree level and covers the same modules across all business and law courses. The modules covered will initially enhance your communications skills, digital and information literacy, and ability to think critically. In addition, modules covering the Foundations of Business Management, Law, and Social Sciences will not only support your progression onto your business degree, but also give you an introduction to other disciplines. You then have the added flexibility of switching your degree programme if another discipline captures your interest, subject to availability and entry requirements.

Entry requirements for the Foundation Year are different than for our three year degrees. For full details, check our Entry Requirements page.
