Course summary

DescriptionA single honours degree in Accounting, with an optional placement year. Maximum professional accreditation, allowing students to graduate as partly exam-qualified accountants. The programme embeds a strong employability theme and demonstrates clear pathways for students, allowing them to specialise in their final year and also complete an independent piece of research in an area related to their work-experience or an area of special interest. This degree will be taught on a semesterised basis, with new modules being introduced each term. The degree incorporates a strong employability theme throughout the programme in both credit bearing and non-credit bearing activities**Course Structure**Because this is a degree with a strong link to a professional role and a professional career following graduation, the first two years of the programme are made up of compulsory modules, with an opportunity to specialise in chosen areas and develop a research project in year 3.The degree has six coherent subject pillars and one theme:1.Financial accounting and reporting (Years 1, 2 and 3)2.Management accounting (Years 1, 2 and 3)3.Information technology (Years 1, 2 and 3)4.Audit and assurance (Years 2 and 3)5.Taxation (Years 2 and 3)6.Research in accounting (Year 3)•Employability theme (running throughout the degree)The subject pillars build throughout the degree so that students can identify linkages between modules. The employability theme helps students to understand the link between work done and employability skills gained from both credit and non-credit bearing activities.
