Accounting (Joint Honours) BA/BSc (Hons)

Accounting is a major and integral aspect of business life in all sectors and across nations. This programmes offers you experience in recording and reporting financial performance, monitoring and controlling activity and resources, sound operational and strategic decisions and more. You can choose to specialise in either financial accounting, taxation, risk management or management accounting.

During the course you will be introduced to theory and principles of accountancy, beginning with the fundamentals such as numeracy, financial and cost accounting along with an appreciation of key organisational financial objectives. There is the option to take a placement year in the UK or overseas, where you will be supported by the Centre for Work-Based Learning.

Representatives from Accounting professional bodies and visiting speakers from a variety of businesses attend the University regularly. Nationwide, MacIntyre Hudson and Mazars are examples of recent visits and are also some of the sponsors who provide prizes at our annual awards ceremony. Local sponsors include Grant Thorntons, Hawsons and Elsby. Elsby are a growing company who will be developing a ‘Young Professionals Networking Platform’ in conjunction with the University in the very near future.

The course is designed to complement many other subjects offered within the Joint Honours programme. Visit our Joint Honours web page for more information about Joint Honours study.
