    Course Summary

    The University of Roehampton’s Accounting BSc degree program is perfect for anyone who wishes to take the first steps towards a rewarding career in accounting, and becoming prepared to take on a responsible role in any of a wide range of organisations in the public, private or not for profit sectors.

    You’ll learn the mathematics and theory behind modern accounting practices as well as exploring the latest developments in accounting research. Just as important, though, you’ll gain practical experience using industry standard tools and software packages. Overall, you’ll gain exactly the kind of skills that modern employers demand for new Accounting graduates.

    The program is accredited by the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), and can provide up to nine examination exemptions for ACCA registration, depending on your performance and choice of modules. It is also CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) certified, and you’d only need to sit six CIMA exams to gain qualification with them.

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.

    • Study Skills Support – assistance with adapting to university methods.
    • Personal Tutors – you’ll be assigned as your personal tutor.
    • Online study resources – 24/7 access to courses, revision tips and more.
    • Library and Research Support – learning research skills from dedicated librarians

    Career Possibilities

    The University of Roehampton’s Accounting BSc degree is heavily focused on improving your employability as a Financial or Management Accountant. Combined with either CIMA or ACCA qualifications – or both – it will show employers that you have all the skills necessary to work in nearly any industry in a professional capacity. Many graduates find they receive job offers from the organisations they did their placement year with, though this is by no means guaranteed.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 3 year BSc degree.

    Applicants must typically have achieved 128 UCAS tariff points, or the international equivalent. Beyond that, a wide range of qualifications are accepted.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
