Our accountancy courses develop graduates who have both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to make an immediate contribution to any organisation.
Our courses have been developed in conjunction with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), and we are an ACCA gold tuition provider. This means that we provide the highest standards in facilities, tuition and course management.
At undergraduate level we offer:
Work placement opportunities
We encourage all of our undergraduate students to take a placement year between the second and final year. It allows you to apply your accumulated skills in paid employment and gain valuable hands-on experience. It also helps you to build industry contacts that will be invaluable when you graduate.
Placement companies include: American Express, AXA Investment Managers, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse, Dow Jones, Ernst & Young, Financial Services Authority, FTSE Group, HM Revenue and Customs, Goldman Sachs International, KPMG, Lloyds Banking Group, LMDB Accountants, PricewaterhouseCoopers and The Bank of England.
Our Accounting and Finance degree is professionally recognised, which means you will be exempt from having to take the foundation exams of the major accountancy bodies, such as ACCA.
An Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification will help your career progress in any organisation. Globally, employers will understand and respect your qualification. You will be in demand for your finance and accounting knowledge regardless of employment sector.
This course can be studied either part-time or full-time.

- key skills in gathering, analysing and presenting information
- an understanding of the impact of globalisation and advance in technology on the financial markets
