    Course Outline

    Year 1:

    In your first year, you’ll take a series of core modules which will give you the understanding you need to advance through the program. These will include introductions to management accounting, financial accounting, economics, investment theory, and a background in mathematics and law in the context of finance and accounting.

    Year 2:

    You will take more advanced core modules in year 2, but also some optional modules selected with your intended specialty in mind. These might involve international business, leadership and management, taxation, banking or others.

    Placement Year:

    This may be taken before you take your year 3 classes. It is a paid placement, and will give you both important real-world work skills and vital industry contacts.

    Year 3:

    You will have a few more core and elective modules in year 3, as well as an extensive research project which should act as a capstone to your specialist education so far.

    Learning & Teaching

    This is a university degree, and the teaching methods vary from what you may be used to. Classes will include large lectures, small group seminars and tutorials, practical workshops and collaborative projects. There will be a very strong focus on independent study, and on developing your ability to identify, analyse and solve problems independently.

    Career Possiblities

    This degree has led many students to careers in civil service, management and accountancy, but also to roles such as corporate treasurer. The professional accounting certifications the degree confers are recognised around the world, and will mark you as a skilled, valuable employee in many different roles.

    Moreover, you will have developed extremely transferrable skills like leadership, problem-solving, teamwork and team-building, independent thinking and ethical awareness.

    You can take advantage of the specialist careers workshops and talks offered by the Careers and Employability Centre, as well as getting help working in your field as you study.
