Overview

If you’re planning a career in accountancy or the financial sector, studying at the University of Stirling is the perfect starting point. Stirling ranks among the top 3 places to study Accountancy and Finance in Scotland (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021), boasting 5-star teaching and multiple industry accreditation.

An accounting degree empowers you to prepare, present and interpret financial information for a wide range of organisations, and the skills you learn will enable investors, lenders, management and others to make key decisions based on financial facts.

The ideal path to a career in accountancy combines a university degree with recognised professional qualifications. The Accountancy programme has been created with this in mind, and successful completion of the course will ensure many professional bodies give you significant exemptions from their exams.

Programme structure

You can study Accountancy as a four-year single honours degree, or combine it with one of eight other courses to broaden your focus. In your first three semesters, your core studies in accounting and finance will be complemented by teaching in economics, business management and business law.

Semesters 4-8 will help you to develop an analytical approach to relevant subjects through eleven advanced core modules. Among those modules will be your dissertation, which will introduce you to research methods in accounting and enhance your communication, evaluation and analytical skills.
