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 or business management. The programme is therefore an excellent choice for those wishing to follow the 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 upon graduation 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 economics, business law and mathematics).
This programme is aligned with ACCA, CIMA and the ICAEW, and in doing so, a requirement for a minimum 40% pass mark (for ACCA and CIMA), and a 50% pass mark (for ICAEW) for each module is required for a student to qualify for the professional exemptions granted to the programme from ACCA and CIMA on the one hand, and ICAEW on the other. Candidates who fail to achieve the relevant required pass mark (ICAEW 50%, ACCA & CIMA 40%) will not receive exemptions for those module(s). Students claim their exemptions upon personal application to the relevant professional body of their interest.

The award is accredited for ACCA (9 exemptions), CIMA (8 exemptions) and ICAEW (8 exemptions).
