With a BAcc degree from Dundee you’ll have the qualification and expertise to begin your career in accountancy. As the accounting and financial reporting world becomes more globalized we concentrate on the developing international standards adopted by the key trading blocks. You’ll discover the power and limitations of accountancy as a tool in society and the financial techniques you’ll need to help society function. Dundee has close links with the accountancy profession. You’ll benefit from the experience of practicing accountants and understand their contemporary challenges through their insights and guest lectures. A number of students opt to undertake an internship with an accountancy firm during their vacation, combining their study with work experience. The degree also provides the opportunity to study overseas at one of our partner institutions in Europe, Australia, Canada and the USA. We are focused on providing a stimulating, supportive, friendly and well-organised environment for students. This commitment was recognised by our rating of ‘Excellent’ by the Scottish Higher Education Funding Council. All accountancy staff, including professors, are active as teachers and researchers. You’ll be learning from a team who routinely push back the boundaries of knowledge in their subject area. The BAcc degree also provides exemption from some of the main professional bodies’ examinations.
Level 1 These modules give you an insight into the business world in which accounting operates. Core skills are developed to equip your interaction with commercial enterprises and society beyond business. Level 2 The concepts of earlier modules will be more fully developed. At this stage you’ll be encouraged to do your own critical thinking, essential in gaining a good Honours degree classification. This is also the year in which you’ll have the opportunity of travelling overseas to study with one of our partner institutions. Level 3 Level three comprises the junior Honours subjects. In the first three years of the BAcc degree all students undertake the same modules. Those who have elected to study a language will begin these studies in this year. Level 4 At this stage you can choose from a range of senior Honours modules. By now you’ll be able to recognise your strengths and tailor your final year to best suit your specific interests in line with your career ambitions.
We're an established university with a progressive and dynamic outlook. Never complacent, we constantly strive to build on our achievements: investing in excellent facilities, pushing the boundaries of research and developing new ways of e-learning.
