Program description

Accounting and Finance with a Year in Industry - BSc (Hons)

The program begins with an introduction to accounting, including computer-aided systems, economics and, if you choose, business law. You then go on to focus in greater depth on subjects such as strategic management, investments and the role of the accountant in international markets.

You can choose from a wide range of accounting and finance options in your final year of study, allowing you to develop specialist knowledge.

Year in industry

You spend a year working between your second and final year – we have a Placement Officer who can give advice and guidance. In previous years, students have spent their year in industry with:

  • British Energy
  • BP
  • IBM
  • Sun Microsystems
  • KPMG
  • Lloyds TSB
  • Unilever.

Spending a year in industry gives you invaluable workplace experience, which greatly enhances your employment prospects and also helps you in your final year at university, allowing you to put your academic learning into a real-world context.
