    Course Summary

    Kent’s Accounting and Finance BA is delivered by the well-respected Kent Business School. It puts you in a position to benefit from both the university’s close ties with the global business community and a teaching program that is fully certified by a range of UK accounting bodies. The taxation module available in year 4 is one of the few qualifying modules offered on this subject.

    This program is perfect for students who wish to learn the ‘ins and outs’ of finance and accounting in a business context as well as preparing to take on a responsible, management level role in the profession. It includes a year’s placement in a business context, which will be a huge help in filling out your CV as well as garnering some real world professional contacts.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
