are delivered Personal Development in Accounting and Finance.

CAREER/FURTHER STUDY OPPORTUNITIES

Career:

Students completing the programme will have the skills and the
knowledge to enter any branch of Accounting. This might include
financial accounting operations, management accounting, auditing,
taxation or financial management. Whilst the course curriculum is
designed with further ACCA study in mind, the course will provide an
excellent platform for any further professional study in the area of
Accounting and Finance (for example the Chartered Insurance Institute
will give exemption for students passing Financial Accounting and
Taxation). Students wishing to enter general business management will
also find that a degree in Accounting will enable them to understand
much of the operations of business.

Further study:

The programme forms excellent underpinning for the Departments MSc
International Finance and Banking, or other masters award. Students of
the programme often develop an interest in a specific area and go on
to further masters study in that area. The majority of graduates
however are attracted by the approval awarded by the professional
institutes and thus go on to professional study, alongside career
development.
