More information

Expenses, accommodation, working etc. 


This is a dual honours course, which means you’ll spend roughly half your time in the partner department, the School of Mathematics and Statistics.

You’ll get a good grounding in both subjects, plus the chance to study specific areas in more detail. The subjects are given equal weighting.

The way we teach the accounting and financial management side is the same, in principle, as the single honours course (Accounting and Financial Management). You take a lot of the same modules as a single honours student.

Because you’re studying two subjects, you don’t get to look at accounting, financial management or mathematics in as much detail as you would on the single honours degrees, but the quality of your education is the same.

The two subjects complement each other, which opens up even more career opportunities.

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it’s up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn.

In the event of any change we’ll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
