About the course

Businesses rely on accountants to help them make informed financial decisions that contribute to their success. Studying this programme will equip you with the know-how to play a part in this.

The Bachelor of Accountancy (BAcc) programme will equip you with the skills needed for a successful career in accountancy.

Covering a full range of accountancy subjects and with an emphasis on the practical aspects of accounting, you’ll gain the knowledge and experience needed to help everything add up in the workplace.

  • You’ll learn the practical skills required for working in accountancy – meaning you can hit the ground running when entering the workplace.
  • Teaching is delivered by highly-qualified accounting and finance professionals.
  • Regular guest lectures from industry experts provide valuable insight into a career in accountancy.
  • We work with a small number of companies who offer an opportunity to take part in a one-year industry placement to improve your skillset. This is a highly competitive process but successful applicants will benefit from this experience.
