Apply Now

Available for September Entry

This degree covers all main areas of accounting and finance in terms of practical application and critical appraisal. It is designed for those wishing to pursue a career as a professional, Chartered Accountant, but also suitable for those wishing to pursue other careers in professional accounting qualifications, finance, or business management. The programme is therefore an excellent choice for those wishing to follow Accountancy, as it offers a blend of theoretical and practical application, combined with accreditation from professional accounting bodies and exposure to a broader knowledge of finance, which is relevant to a wide range of other business careers.

If you wish to pursue a professional accounting qualification, you will receive partial exemption from the professional accounting bodies examinations. In each year of the course, you will study a combina­tion of accounting and finance modules, as well as modules supplemented by other disciplines [such as economics, business law and mathematics).
This programme is aligned with ACCA, CIMA and ICAEW, and in doing so a minimum 40% pass mark for ACCA and CIMA, and 50% pass mark for ICAEW for each module is required for the student to qualify for these professional exemptions.

The BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance of UCLan Cyprus presents its unique partnership with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), which is the globally reputed professional accounting body offering the Chartered Certified Accountant professional qualification.

This opportuni­ty makes them more competitive in the marketplace, as it gives them the space to complete both their BA [Hons) Accounting and Finance and their ACCA qualification in four years or shortly after.
