Course Summary

This is an ideal course if you want to top-up your existing accountancy qualifications and achieve a degree in just one year. It's designed for students who want to use their current qualifications to develop skills in industry-standard accounting practices. This top-up degree offers direct entry to the final year of our undergraduate course. The programme covers more than accountancy practices though.

The exact composition of your study time and assessments for the course will vary according to your option choices and style of learning, but it could be: Assessment: 30-40% coursework, 60-70% examination. By completing this course you’ll show employers that you understand accounting practices. You’ll also develop valuable management skills that will allow you to progress to higher profile roles. You’ll graduate with the knowledge you need to continue onto professional accounting examinations with organisations such as ACCA, CIMA and ICAEW. This means you’re on the path to becoming a qualified accountant.
