At the same time, you will develop yourself personally, confident in your own values, able to apply your knowledge to solve problems, and ultimately able to add value to any organisation. On completing this ACCA-accredited degree you will be exempt from nine of the ACCA professional exams, should you go on to work towards your full professional qualification.

This is achieved through our Business Readiness modules, where you will gather evidence, working with your personal tutors, on developing attributes and skills. In your first year, you will be introduced to financial and management accounting techniques, including the preparation of financial reports with the understanding of the users and uses of such reports. In year two, as well as continuing to develop your business readiness, you will be introduced to people and project management, which will complement your developing accounting skills. Modules include the Law of Business Enterprises and Taxation Practice In the third year, in addition to your dissertation in accounting, you will build your financial skills through modules such as Advanced Financial Accounting, Corporate Finance, Audit Practice and Ethics, and Accounting for Decision Making.

You don't have to be an accountant if you take this degree, but over half of graduates take a look at the rewards on offer for accountancy trainees and go into the job. Many others go into other parts of the finance industry as advisors or book-keepers, and some go into management or marketing. London is very popular for accountancy graduates going into their first job, but it's also quite common to work in Scotland, with Glasgow a perennial hotbed of Scottish accountancy recruitment. If you want to find a job in finance as an accountancy graduates, recruitment agencies were particularly important last year, so try to get in touch with one as soon as you can to improve your chances.
