Course Description

This four-year course is perfect for those returning to education who may not have the correct qualifications. If you’ve only studied up to GCSE Level but have always aspired to working in accounting or finance, we pride ourselves on accepting applicants who have previously ruled out a degree based on their past grades.

In your first year, you’ll complete four foundation year modules designed to prepare you for the next three years, covering study skills and an introduction to accounting and financial management.

After this, you’ll study the theory and practice of accounting and financial management. You’ll develop an understanding of ethical principles and dilemmas to create effective solutions. Our course is designed to develop your employability skills, such as evaluation of data and how best to use contemporary information and communications technology. You’ll learn how to use leading accounting software used in the workplace, and the most up-to-date knowledge on tax and accounting standards.
