You will study in line with professional practice requirements and so maximise the number of accreditations and exemptions you will have upon graduation.
Your degree will be accredited with the Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales (ICAEW), the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and the Association of International Accountants (AIA).
You can choose to study 3 years full time or 4 years with a 12 month placement which can count towards the practice time needed to qualify as an accountant.
You’ll study the fundamentals of management and financial accounting as well as the, legal and economic contexts within which they operate. You’ll develop hands on financial analysis skills using real data, software and techniques used in practice in our Thomson Reuters Trading room. There you will access the largest real time and historical data on financial markets (equities, bonds, currencies, derivatives, etc) and company fundamentals. You’ll master the use of a range of statistical and econometric software in financial modeling. You’ll also build and manage portfolio of investments and obtain additional industry recognised certifications.
You’ll then deepen your accounting knowledge with study options, including taxation, auditing, strategy, and contemporary issues such as social & environmental.
You’ll also have the chance to work on a finance or business project and enter the CIMA Global Business Challenge and compete with undergraduates around the world.
Alongside your academic and practical studies you’ll also follow your own business engagement programme which will give you first hand participation in live accounting or business environments. We call this ‘Make it’ and it is unique to the University of Gloucestershire.
