The fields of accounting, finance & economics have developed considerably in recent years and today’s graduates are expected to have a range of skills that transfer into a business environment.
Each of the courses in our accounting and finance framework will give you vital core skills, as well as offering specialist options depending on the pathway you choose to pursue. All courses’ first year units are the same, allowing you the flexibility to transfer to another pathway at the end of the first year. This keeps your career options open and enables you to make more informed choices.
On the Accounting & Taxation degree you'll gain a thorough understanding of taxation, a skill that many employers are seeking in accountants. We’ve taken our expertise in taxation and combined it with some of the best aspects of our accountancy courses to ensure you graduate with a full set of skills that will help you go far in any business environment.
As well as having industry accreditations, this course offers exemptions for accountancy qualifications, which means you may not have to take all the exams required to become a Chartered Accountant. It also covers communication and IT skills, which are vital in the modern business world. What's more if you opt to include the a minimum of 30-weeks placement as part of your course, you’ll gain invaluable workplace experience and can see how everything you’ve learned translates into the real world.
We are proud to be one of a select number of UK universities that can offer its top performing Accounting and Taxation undergraduates the opportunity to obtain the ICAEW’s Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (CFAB) in your final year. The CFAB is an internationally recognised professional qualification which will further boost your employability prospects.
