    Course Summary

    This course is designed to give graduates the kind of practical, real world problem solving skills they need to be assets to employers. You’ll also learn the theory and research tools which will help you build a professional practice.

    This can be taken as a 3 year or a 4 year degree. There are several options, including a year abroad at one of NU’s partner universities or a year in work placement. Many students begin with the 3 year degree program and then upgrade later. This can easily be accomplished during or immediately after the first year of the program.

    Depending on your choices, your degree may convey exemptions from certain professional examinations, including:

    • The ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales)
    • The CIPFA (Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy)
    • The CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants)
    • The AIA (Association of International Accountants)
    • The ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants)

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.
