Program description

BSc Accounting & Finance

Decision making, big data, management… there’s more to accounting and finance than numbers. Studying here, you’ll explore every aspect of the area and learn to support businesses across different sectors.

Whether you want to work in a top accountancy firm or start a career in research, we’ll help you develop the expertise you need. You’ll take some of the professional exams too, so you’re one step closer to professional or chartered status when you graduate.

Fit for the digital age

Digitalisation has transformed the way this sector works. And we’ve updated our course to reflect this. You won’t be spending hours working out calculations on paper – we’ll show you how to use the latest software that professionals use in practice.

To help you develop the skills you need to stand out, we’ll assess you in different ways. Instead of a formal exam, you might prepare a presentation, write a report, or talk to a panel of experts. For example, past students have presented ideas to professionals from Salford City Council.

This program has the following options:

  • 3 years full-time
  • 4 years with placement
  • 4 years with overseas study
