This course is designed with professional qualifications in mind. Our syllabus is closely linked with the requirements of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales (ICAEW), giving you the opportunity to achieve maximum exemptions from professional accounting examinations. Without this degree, completing these papers would normally take a minimum two to three years, assuming you pass first time.
If you choose this course you will benefit from:
The first year provides the foundations for all further study. You will study Introductory Financial and Management Accounting, plus Economics, Mathematical Techniques and Statistics.
The second year builds on these foundations with mandatory Financial and Management Accounting, Corporate Law and Taxation, with options in Finance and Banking. Research skills are also developed in this year in preparation for a final year project in a topic of your own choosing.
The final year requires you to study International Corporate Reporting, Performance Management, Financial Management and Corporate Finance, while there are further options in Audit, Corporate Governance, International Finance and International Taxation.
Your course will be based on a series of weekly lectures, small group seminars and workshops. Some classes may be held in IT suites where students have individual PCs and work using appropriate software packages, such as SAGE and SAP. In addition, you will be assigned a personal tutor who will review and discuss your progress with you and will be available for advice.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
