Overview

Students may wish to pursue the three-year BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance programme or complete this four-year MAcc (Hons) Accounting and Finance programme which has been designed to encourage students to develop their technical knowledge and professional skills relevant to the discipline of accounting.

This programme includes more technical accounting modules, such as Audit and Taxation. It also offers the maximum exemptions
from professional accountancy examinations. This programme is an ideal first step for those students who wish to charter as accountant, but it also provides a strong foundation for students who aspire to have a career in the wider financial sector.

Alternatively, students may pursue the four-year integrated Masters programme – these students study for an extra year and graduate with an MAcc (Hons), as opposed to a BA (Hons).

Students opting for the four-year MAcc (Hons) in Accounting and Finance develop their capacity for critical thinking, independent learning and research. The MAcc programme covers the analysis, synthesis and evaluation of contemporary accounting and finance issues. The aim is to contribute to the development of higher level professional skills and competencies.
