If you are interested in specialising in accounting and working within the financial or wider business sector, then this two-year full-time course is for you.

This course has a strong emphasis on the development of employability skills and you will complete a Managing Professional Development module in the first year and engage in a period of work placement in second year.

This programme of study is likely to include enrichment units, which are an additional component to enhance your employability.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework could be group work, presentations, class tests or practical exercises.
