Accounting and Finance

Let's work on more than numbers. Let's work on building economies.

Accounting graduates are needed in a multitude of industries, wherever there is money involved, and we offer an exciting selection of degrees in this area; whether you want to become a Chartered Accountant, or work in a related field.

Our programmes offer a solid foundation to enter into the accounting profession. For those wishing to become Chartered Accountants, our BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance degree has accreditation from a number of prestigious professional bodies, including the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). For those interested in working within a related field, we offer our highly regarded Accounting and Financial Studies degree, without the need to take formal body examinations.

You’ll develop your intellectual capacity and analytical skills, enabling you to work in audit, tax and accountancy businesses as well as in financial functions within other organisations.

We also offer a range of postgraduate programmes to qualify as a Chartered Accountant, which is ideal for those who are already working within the field but who would like to top up their skills and knowledge to master’s level.
