WHAT WILL I LEARN?
The first year provides the foundations for all further study. You will study Introductory Financial and Management Accounting, Economics, Mathematical Techniques and Statistics.
The second year builds on these foundations with mandatory Financial and Management Accounting, Corporate Law and Taxation, with options in Finance, Accounting Information Systems and Banking. Research skills are also developed in this year in preparation for a final year project in an accounting related topic of your choice.
The final year requires you to study International Corporate Reporting, Performance Management and Business Strategy, while there are further options including Audit, Corporate Governance, Financial Management and International Taxation.
Your course will be based on a series of weekly lectures, small group seminars and workshops. Some classes may be held in IT suites where students have individual PCs and work using appropriate software packages, such as SAGE and SAP. In addition, you will be assigned a personal tutor who will review and discuss your progress with you and be available for advice.
HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?
