This is a top-up version of our Accounting and Finance BA (Hons) degree. A top-up degree is the final year (Level 6) of an undergraduate degree course and is for those who have a foundation degree, Higher National Diploma or equivalent qualification, or those wishing to study the final year of their degree in London.
This degree will help you on your way to becoming a qualified accountant but also opens up opportunities for alternative rewarding careers in finance.
The course encompasses a broad range of topics, including accounting and financial theory. In addition to developing your academic and research knowledge, you'll learn to use a range of business and accounting software, such as Excel, Oracle and Sage.
You'll be taught by lecturers who have accumulated an impressive level of academic and professional experience in public audit, taxation, financial reporting, management accounting and information systems. Occasionally, distinguished external speakers are invited to make presentations on contemporary accounting, finance and business-related issues.
Our vibrant accounting and finance community of students and academics will support you in reaching your career goals. We organise events where you'll have the opportunity to meet with accounting and business professionals, enabling you to create a valuable network for your future career.
There are a variety of assessment tools used in the core modules, including essays designed to showcase your writing skills and presentations designed to prepare you for the job market.
