Full entry requirements
Academic entry qualification overview:
We normally look for a UK bachelor degree with first or upper second class honours or the overseas equivalent, with excellent results in accounting and finance subjects.
When assessing your academic record, we take into account your grade average, position in class, references and the standing of the institution where you studied your qualification. We particularly welcome applications from institutions of high ranking and repute.
You need to have studied or be studying a degree in accounting and/or finance. We can also consider exceptional candidates with degrees in economics or mathematics. You must have taken a significant number of courses in accounting and finance during your degree, and a major or specialisation in accounting and/or finance in your final year, with top level results in final year accounting and finance subjects. You must also demonstrate a solid background in quantitative skills, econometrics or maths.
Applicants studying degrees in business administration, business management or commerce, can be considered but must be able to demonstrate a very strong background in accounting and finance throughout their degree and a final year major or specialisation in accounting and/or finance (as outlined above). Due to competition for places, preference will be given to applicants with a bachelor degree in accounting and/or finance.
