Course summary

The Postgraduate Diploma in Accounting at Ulster University is designed to offer you a route to become a Chartered/Certified Accountant. The course is suitable for students with little or no previous knowledge of accounting and finance who wish to study these subjects further, or who wish to undertake postgraduate studies in accounting and finance but lack the depth of knowledge necessary to study at Master’s level. Throughout this fast-track programme, you will develop your knowledge and understanding of the key aspects of accounting, finance and business. The Postgraduate Diploma in Accounting will also help you to enhance your personal skills, as well as the subject-specific and professional skills you will need to be successful as an accountant.

Successful students can progress to the MSc Advanced Accounting or MSc Strategic Accounting or directly to an accounting training contract to become a professionally qualified accountant. The programme has excellent post-graduation employment rates and through the University's Employability and Careers Service, we facilitate meetings with prospective employers during the programme. Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) for the purpose of exemption from some professional examinations through the Accredited degree accelerated route.
