Why International Accountancy?

A qualification in Accountancy could help you find employment not just with businesses in the UK but with global businesses too. This one-year top up course puts traditional accountancy into a global context. It could be ideal if you’ve already studied accounting and want to explore contemporary issues in an international setting.

If you’re going to be an accountant in the UK or abroad it’s vital you understand how organisations are financed and managed. That’s what’s at the core of our degree. We’ll give you invaluable insights into how international companies are run, and then give you the chance to specialise in particular areas.

How will I learn?

You will learn through practical application and delivered lectures, workshops, seminars and group work sessions.

* Here at Huddersfield, you'll be taught by some of the best lecturers in the country. We've been the English university with the highest proportion of professionally qualified teaching staff for three years running (HESA - First awarded in 2016, maintained in 2017 and 2018).

* You’ll be able to connect with leading accounting firms thanks to our Partners in Accountancy scheme.

What subjects will you cover?

You’ll look at Advanced Management Accounting and International Business. At the start of the year you’ll be able to choose the optional modules that interest you to build your own career path. Options may include subjects such as Strategy in Context, Investment Management and Tax Framework.

Studying for degree on one of our Accountancy courses opens up a range of career opportunities including varied accountancy roles in industry as well as auditing and taxation roles with firms of accountants. An accountant is at the heart of any organisation and accountants are in high demand. Our courses have been designed to give you the skills, competencies and knowledge valued by industry and the profession and they prepare you for a career in Accountancy. All our courses offer the opportunity to gain real world experience through an industrial placement, as well as obtaining exemptions from professional body exams. Accountancy is a varied subject allowing students to develop their own interests.

If you want to learn about this exciting and interesting subject from an enthusiastic staff team with professional accountancy experience and academic expertise, then a course in this area could be right for you. ~ Pamela Anderson, Senior Lecturer in Accountancy.
