Course summary

Forensic accounting and the related discipline of forensic audit are fast-developing areas in the commercial world. Major professional accounting firms now have departments offering forensic accounting and audit services, and the demand for expertise in this area is growing exponentially.

USW's respected Forensic Audit and Accounting masters course - the only course of its kind in the UK - has been running for ten years and provides specialist skills in fraud investigation, valuations, assist in dispute resolution, expert reports and conduct analysis.

Employment opportunities are numerous, from specialist firms of forensic accountants to specialist departments within accountancy firms. Forensic audit and forensic accounting are important areas for national governments, particularly in developing countries.

We intend to deliver our courses in a blended format; with a proportion of the teaching and learning being delivered digitally, and where it is safe to do so, some teaching and learning being delivered in person and using social distancing and/or mitigating measures as deemed appropriate in line with government guidance.

Assessment

Assessment methods include examinations and coursework-based assignments.

Careers

Forensic Audit and Accounting is a growing, niche area with audit and accountancy firms looking for specialist skills.

It is also an important area for national governments, particularly in developing countries. As a result, employment opportunities are numerous, from specialist firms of forensic accountants to specialist departments within accountancy firms.

There are many opportunities in the public and regulatory sectors, as well as employment prospects in commercial organisations, as part of investigatory, internal audit, and compliance departments.

Recent graduates are employed in the forensic accounting department of a ‘Big Four’ accountancy firm, and as a Fraud Investigator for a national public sector auditor.
