Course summary

Overview

This accredited course offers the ideal platform for students to develop theoretical and practical skills valued by employers. Our close links with professional accounting bodies provide you with the opportunity to gain exemptions from some professional exams, allowing you to complete them at a faster pace and giving you a head start in the graduate jobs market.

You will study accounting modules which will give you a solid grounding in key business concepts, ideas and methodologies. The Economics modules will teach you how to analyse and measure real economic issues based on your knowledge of economic theory.

In your second and third years you can choose from a range of optional modules to tailor your learning to your interests and career ambitions.

Teaching and assessment

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, group work and self-directed study. Assessment is through coursework (presentations, essays and reports) and usually an exam or test, which is typically weighted as follows in your first year:

  • Exam: 52%
  • Coursework: 48%

These assessment weightings are indicative only. The exact weighting may vary depending on option modules chosen by students and teaching methods deployed by the academic member of staff each year. Indicative assessment weighting and assessment type per module are shown as part of the module information. Again these are based on the current academic session.
