With a high level of professional exemptions from the accounting bodies ACCA, ICAEW, CIPFA, AIA and IFA, this challenging course will help you become a qualified accountant or start work in a finance-related career. You'll have access to an extensive network of industry contacts to help with optional work experience placements and projects.

**More about this course**

Through this course, you’ll develop your academic writing, your independent research skills and your practical skills in business and accounting software such as Microsoft Excel, Sage and Oracle. The programme is delivered through a blend of lectures, seminars, workshops, presentations and plenary sessions.

Between them, our staff have accumulated an impressive level of academic and professional experience in public audit, taxation, financial reporting, management accounting and information systems. Occasionally, distinguished external speakers are invited to make presentations on contemporary accounting, finance and business-related issues.

We place particular emphasis on employability, and our lecturers, who have a wide network of industry contacts, can help you with optional work experience placements and projects. On completion of the course, you’ll receive full exemption from all of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA)’s fundamental exam papers.
