Title: Finance and Accounting BSc (Hons)
Overview:The finance and accounting degree is specifically designed for those students who wish to go on, after graduation, to become a qualified accountant in order to pursue a career, either in professional practice, or in corporate finance.
The course has been structured to provide the maximum possible number of exemptions – 9 papers in total – from the professional examinations of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, the global body for professional accountants.
The degree syllabus has been carefully designed to combine the intellectual and practical aspects of finance and accountancy and so provide students with the required academic rigor, tempered with professional realism.
In addition, the degree explores the concepts of business culture and business ethics: and introduces the key management functions across the whole spectrum of business activity. The result is that graduates are equipped with an array of transferable business skills, as well as technical knowledge of finance and accountancy practice.

- You will have a minimum of twelve hours’ lectures and tutorials a week (‘contact time’ with a lecturer or tutor). Each year consists of two semesters of 12 weeks of teaching followed by a period for revision and assessment.
- The core lectures and tutorials are carefully timetabled to take place on just two days of the week (for example, Mondays and Tuesdays or Thursdays and Fridays). We believe this offers our students more chance of finding
- meaningful, better-paid part-time work than students at many universities where the few hours’ lectures are spread over the whole of the week.
- You will be expected to undertake extensive independent study when you are not attending lectures.
- Your learning experience will be further enhanced by skills sessions, tutor surgeries and guest lectures which are organised throughout the year.
- Each course module is delivered through a combination of large group lectures – where the main ideas and concepts are presented – and tutorials where students are broken into smaller groups for an interactive discussion and analysis of the lecture content.
- Students are assessed predominantly through a mix of examination and coursework.
