Course Description

Our Accounting BSc provides a strong preparation for a rewarding career in accounting, opening the door to work with business, public and third-sector organisations.

While developing your accounting knowledge and skills, you will develop yourself personally, become confident in your own values, apply your knowledge to solve problems, and ultimately learn to add value to any organisation.

Across the three years, you will undertake specialist ACCA-accredited accounting modules, which means when you graduate, you will be exempt from nine of the ACCA professional exams if you choose to work towards your full professional qualification.

The degree is also accredited by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), so you just need to take six CIMA exams to complete your CIMA qualification.

Our accounting degree is strongly focused on developing you as a ‘business ready’ graduate. You’ll become highly employable and capable, with the knowledge and skills required by employers and professional accounting bodies.

You will learn to identify and solve complex accounting problems, and apply the skills and techniques you acquire to a range of business scenarios. We will support you to develop the self confidence and resilience to be able to professionally challenge the status quo and effectively present realistic alternatives.
