Your next steps
Careers and employability
The course has been designed alongside the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) Undergraduate Partnership Programme.
It will provide you with a fast track to an accountancy qualification, and the four-year degree offers you the opportunity of a full-year paid work placement in your third year of study.
The course offers significant exemptions from the examinations of professional accountancy bodies, particularly those of the ICAEW.
Our teaching staff are leading researchers in their fields - some are also qualified accountants.
ICAEW networking events provide opportunities to meet companies who offer internships through the UPP, such as Ernst & Young, Goldman Sachs, and PwC.
Become a Chartered Accountant
You can complete eight out of the 15 ICAEW ACA papers required to become a fully Chartered Accountant.
Your degree is recognised by seven professional awarding bodies.
Many of these partners - ICAEW, CPA Australia, ACCA, CIPFA, CFA, CIMA, and ICAS - offer considerable exemptions, fast-tracking you to qualified accountant status.
Who employs our Accounting graduates?
Example employers include BDO, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, Grant Thornton, HM Revenue & Customs, KPMG, NHS, PwC, and RBS.
Some go on to further study in accounting, banking, and finance.
