    Course Summary

    Accountancy plays a huge part of nearly every industry and type of large organisation today, across the public, private and not for profit sectors. The University of Westminster’s BSc degree program in Accounting gives you the background, theoretical understanding and practical skills you’ll need to forge a career in a wide range of Professional or Financial Services roles, but also the kind of highly transferrable, sought-after skills which can boost your employability in virtually any role.

    You’ll learn the application of accounting principles but also problem solving, team work, communications and an awareness of general commercial principles. The course is closely aligned with the needs of professional accountants, and depending on your performance and choice of elective modules can provide exemptions from up to 9 ACCA papers. It is also accredited by CIMA, so you will have the option of proceeding directly into work, finishing your professional certifications, or upgrading to a Master’s degree upon graduation.

    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.

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.
