Course summary

Our innovative MSc Professional Accounting (with ACCA tuition) combines advanced academic study with a professional accounting qualification. This accounting masters is aimed at students who have completed the Fundamentals Level papers of the ACCA Professional Qualification (applied knowledge and skills papers), or those who are exempted from these ACCA papers by virtue of studying an accounting degree, recognised and accredited by ACCA.

Taught by award-winning tutors from our Platinum-accredited ACCA programme, modules are aligned with the final Strategic Professional Level of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) Qualification.

Students are prepared to sit the four ACCA Strategic Professional external exams shortly after the completion of internal Masters assessments. USW's accounting course therefore offers a study regime that is highly efficient in terms of both cost and time, with professional and academic Masters study occurring concurrently. On the full-time course students can obtain a Masters qualification and sit all ACCA exams in one year.

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

ACCA exams require students to focus on the complex practical scenarios that a professional accountant will face and the advanced technical competencies they will require to tackle these. Internal MSc exam-based assessments replicate the structure and style of the external ACCA exams.

They are typically sat two weeks before the external ACCA exam and thus act as mock exams on which feedback is quickly given, as well as accruing MSc credits in their own right. Internal MSc written and oral assignments have a different emphasis, focusing on the critical evaluation appropriate for an academic Masters qualification.
