Course description

ACCOUNTANCY WITH LANGUAGES is the process by which financial information about a business is recorded, classified, summarised, interpreted and communicated. One of the programmeâ??s greatest strengths is our use of external tutors. These professional accountants will lead tutorials, offering you the opportunity to discuss issues and learn from their experience. You will be required to study abroad in your chosen language as part of the programme. If you need to acquire or revise your language skills, we can provide specialist language courses.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
You don't have to be an accountant if you take this degree, but a lot of graduates take a look at the rewards on offer for accountancy trainees and go into the job. Many others go into other parts of the finance industry, and some go into management or marketing. The recent setbacks in the finance industry have meant the employment figures are not as good as usual and if the industry recovers, we'd expect to see that data improve. London is very popular for accountancy graduates going into their first job, but it's also quite common to work in Scotland, with Glasgow a hotbed of Scottish accountancy recruitment in 2012. If you want to find a job in finance as an accountancy graduate, recruitment agencies were particularly important last year, so try to get in touch with one as soon as you can to improve your chances.
