Accounting and Finance (with Professional Exemptions)

Get a head start in the process of becoming a qualified accountant. Undertake a paid 48-week placement and enhance your practical experience. Gain exemptions from nine exams from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.

This Accounting and Finance course has long been a popular choice because of its excellent career prospects. The course is so closely tied into real-world professional requirements that, when you've successfully completed it, you'll be exempt from exam papers from three professional accounting bodies.
