Course Summary

Accounting and Finance at Salford Business School helps you develop the essential skills and knowledge for a high-level career in accountancy, finance, banking and insurance as well as general management positions. With a curriculum that is career-focused and industry-informed, Accounting and Finance is a challenging programme designed to provide you with a thorough understanding of accounting and finance within the wider context of business and management. Our relationships with a number of professional accounting bodies ensure the modules you study will always be closely aligned with current best practice. Our partnerships mean that you benefit from exemptions from the maximum number of professional exams as well as the opportunity to join the ACCA Accelerate programme.The Professional Development module in the second year helps you to develop the skills you need – presentation skills, networking, interview techniques etc – to move more easily into successful employment. We strongly encourage all our students to take up the opportunity of an industry placement year between the second and third year of study. You can practise the skills you have already learned, develop your professional network and students who have done work experience tend to get better final year results. During this year, you will not pay University fees and you will be paid for your work.Through the Study Abroad programme, you could choose to spend your second year studying on an international exchange with one of our global partner institutions in Europe, the US or the rest of the world.The Professional Experience Year will give you the opportunity to apply the skills, knowledge and understanding you have gained in the first two years of the course and is recognised by both CIMA and ACCA as one of the three years of postgraduate experience required for formal certification. If you choose to take the professional year option, you will not pay fees to the University and will earn a wage for the work that you do. There are different entry requirements and course codes for the Professional Experience Year option. This degree is also offered with a Foundation Year.
