BSc Accounting and Finance

Are you looking for an Accounting and Finance degree to give you a competitive edge? The BSc Accounting and Finance degree at Swansea University will do just that.

If you want a career at one of the ‘big four’ firms (Deloitte, EY, KPMG or PwC), or if see yourself as an accountant for a government body, small or large business, not-for-profit organisation, or individual, the BSc Accounting and Finance degree will equip you with everything you need.

Equally, if you are seeking a future in the lucrative and powerful world of banking and finance, our course presents an excellent route.

This degree is perfect if you have a committed interest in both accounting and finance (including management accounting, financial accounting, and corporate finance). As well as a strong foundation in both accounting and finance, it offers a range of optional modules to help develop your interests.

Pioneering research and industry knowledge informs our teaching, while expert academics will help to build the skills which are vital to your performance in the accounting and finance sector.
