Combined with the fact that demand for skilled Accounting and Finance graduates is consistently high, the quality of the education you’ll receive at UWE virtually ensures your access to amazing career options.

You’ll also have a tremendous access to real-world experience, including working placements, guest speakers form the industry and a world-leading Immersive Audit Simulation.
