Course info

Summary

Throughout the BA Accounting and Finance, you’ll study a breadth and depth of accounting and finance subjects giving you the opportunity to take your knowledge to a new level. Areas of study may include accounting information, the legal, regulatory and social context within which accounting operates.What’s more, if you choose the relevant modules, you may gain exemption from some of the ACA, ACCA and CIMA examinations once you’ve completed your degree. Just another small step that will help make your way up the career ladder a little easier.Flexibility – subject to optional module choice and successful completion of your first year – it may be possible to change your degree path to either Accounting and Management or Finance. (Students who require a Tier 4 visa will need to check this in advance with the Tier 4 regulations which are in place at the time). **Year 1**In the first year, compulsory modules will provide you with an introduction to accountancy and the key fundamentals to examine and evaluate modern financial markets. Typical modules may include introductions to financial and management accounting, economics, finance and mathematics and statistics. This compulsory core will be complemented by an optional module from the areas of business, global economics or foreign languages. **Year 2**In the second year, compulsory modules allow you continue your studies in accounting and finance with a choice of optional modules considering the broader financial context including economics, taxation and law and the opportunity to study a foreign language. **Year 3**All of our degrees offer you the option of spending your third year gaining practical experience on a business placement. Business placements are a great way to develop your employment marketability and to engage with employers early in their recruitment pipeline. We actively encourage you to explore this as an option within your degree. A placement requires a minimum of forty weeks of work experience and the placement begins in the summer following completion of the second year, and this then becomes the third year of a four-year degree programme. This allows you to really explore and understand your job and to find out if the career or company is for you.You will develop your practical skills, confidence and maturity.You can focus on a specific career path -many employers recruit graduates from their placement programme.You will be able to contextualise your studies better, be more mature in your attitude to work.You may decide to draw on your working experiences and access a more fulfilling dissertation research subject.You will gain invaluable job search and graduate research skills by engaging in the competitive placement recruitment process.**Year 4**Moving to a more research-led teaching orientation in the third year, you are required to produce a double module Dissertation in an area of accounting and finance areas. Additionally, you will study two compulsory modules exploring the world of accounting. You will have the option to choose two modules from a range of business, accounting and finance options. You may also choose to continue your study of a foreign language.We review course structures and core content (in light of e.g. external and student feedback) every year, and will publish finalised core requirements for 2021 entry from September 2020.For more information on this course, please see our website.
