Course summary

Accountancy – a qualification you can count on Studying the Bachelor of Accountancy (BAcc) course you will learn that accounting concerns the preparation, presentation and interpretation of financial information to enable investors, lenders, management, employees, government and others to make effective decisions. Accountants are required to register and pass examinations of a recognised professional accountancy body. Having our degree behind you will take you some way to achieving this, as you will gain significant exam exemptions from your chosen professional body’s scheme, allowing you to work at an advanced level earlier. We follow our students’ progress from Year 1 to graduation and aim to enhance their learning experience by offering social events throughout their study which include presentations from professional bodies. The employability of our students is a particular priority to us and one of our Year 3 modules, Accounting Information and Employment, has a particular focus on this. We have a focused involvement from professional accounting bodies, including ACCA and CIMA. A Year 4 optional module reflects the research interests of our staff and includes such diverse areas as sustainability, corporate governance and international finance. During the degree, students participate in a personal and professional development module with a focus on developing key skills that employers are looking for, as well as helping students prepare for, and make the effective transition into the workplace. Prizes for undergraduate students are provided by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS) and by KPMG, one of the international accounting firms. • ICAS Charles Scott Prize: £100 is awarded annually to the Bachelor of Accountancy student with the highest overall performance in certain modules. • KPMG Prize: There are three prizes of £200 awarded annually to the students who achieve the highest aggregate marks in certain modules. Many professional bodies recognise the Bachelor of Accountancy (BAcc) as a relevant degree and offer significant exemptions from their examinations. We have accreditation with several professional accountancy bodies including: ACCA, CIPFA, CIMA, ICAS.Do you enjoy numbers the way others enjoy music, poetry or art? Mathematical training develops both specific skills and broad analytical expertise, which are valued across all professions; and there is a particular demand for graduates who not only have quantitative skills, but also know how to use them. Our courses deliver that sought-after combination – both through our teaching style and our focus on real-world applications of both mathematical and statistical techniques. For instance, you will use the mathematics computing laboratories as an integral part of your learning process, making your study as much experimental as theoretical. Our Mathematics and Statistics department provides a stimulating and supportive learning environment and we have a strong and active research group. Its major interest is the application of mathematics to biology, economics and life sciences, and we offer combined Honours degrees in the relevant disciplines.
