What will I learn?

Course description

This unique, professionally-oriented course has been designed alongside the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) Undergraduate Partnership Programme (UPP).

It will provide you with a fast track to an accountancy qualification and the four-year degree offers you the opportunity of a full-year paid work placement in your third year of study.

Teaching and learning

You will normally study four or five course units per semester. Each week there are usually two hours of lectures for each course unit and a one hour workshop in alternate weeks, although this varies slightly. You are expected to double this in private study. Group work and group or individual presentations will form a regular part of your assignments.

Coursework and assessment

Essays, multiple choice tests, project reports and presentations, in-class tests and weekly assignments constitute the coursework component of assessment, although the nature and proportion of coursework varies across course units. The remainder of assessment is by unseen examination. Depending on the degree course, in your final year you can choose to do a research-based dissertation or project. We aim to strike a balance between examinations and assessed coursework as well as providing opportunities for feedback on progress through non-assessed work.

Career opportunities

The ultimate aim of the programme is to empower you to achieve long-term career success and become the leading professionals of tomorrow. We aim for you to be `employability ready' by the start of second year so that you can apply to and choose from a range of summer internships and placements. The programme has partnerships with ICAEW, CIPFA, ACCA, CFA and CIMA. You'll benefit from these partnerships through exam exemptions, work experience offers and training.
