Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Are you looking for an Accounting degree, which will give you a competitive edge? The BSc Accounting with a Foundation Year at Swansea University will do just that.

If you don’t achieve the necessary grades to enrol on to the BSc Accounting course, the BSc Accounting with a Foundation Year degree is for you.

The Foundation Year is an excellent pathway to gaining the required knowledge and skills in accounting before joining Year 1 students of the BSc Accounting degree within the School of Management.

If you want a career at one of the ‘big four’ accounting firms (Deloitte, EY, KPMG or PwC), or if see yourself as an in-house accountant for a government body, small or large business, not-for-profit organisation, or individual, the BSc Accounting degree will equip you with everything you need.

As an accountant, you will play a fundamental role in the running of a business – big or small. Managing budgets and taxes, financial reporting, completing audits - all are critical in ensuring that a business or organisation runs as effectively and successfully as possible.

The Foundation Year is taught at The College, located next to the School of Management. Once you complete this year, you will move to the School of Management building for the remainder of your studies.

YOUR ACCOUNTING WITH A FOUNDATION YEAR EXPERIENCE

The BSc Accounting with a Foundation Year degree at Swansea is a flexible degree with the chance to study abroad for a year, or work in industry for a year. This can give you a real competitive advantage and will broaden your horizons when it comes to seeking employment.

Your first year (the Foundation Year) is taught at The College, located next to the School of Management and your final three years are taught within the School of Management itself.

Our wide selection of optional modules, which you can choose in your final two years of study, will allow you to shape the degree towards your career goals.

Teaching at Swansea is partly informed by research, and our staff have hands-on experience of theory and practice, meaning you can benefit from their academic expertise and real-world know-how.

During your time with us, you will also have full access to our cutting edge video and digital content creation suite and state-of-the-art facilities at the School of Management, including the Fujitsu Innovation Hub and presentation rooms.

As well as setting you up for a career as an accountant within a business or organisation, we also have support services available to help you start your own business. This is particularly useful for those students wanting to become independent accountants.

ACCOUNTING WITH A FOUNDATION YEAR EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

As a graduate from Swansea, you will find yourself in a great position to secure rewarding employment at any desirable organisation.
