Accounting and Finance courses in the UK will help you craft unique perspectives and knowledge on economics, mathematics, political science, psychology and sociology. Students will learn how to prepare and interpret financial information, as well as gaining a theoretical and practical understanding of core financial practice.
Modules at each university will broadly be the same, and cover topics such as bookkeeping, statistics and credit and financial analytics. Year 1 will introduce you to key financial and economic practice, laying the foundations to all future study. Year 2 will continue to develop your understanding of corporate finance, while also introducing optional modules you may wish to focus on. Year 3 will see you focus on a year long project, often in the form of a dissertation.
Career options for accounting and finance graduates include accountancy, chartered accountancy, banking, insurance brokering, financial advisor, financial trader, investment analyst and tax advisor.
Because of the broad nature of the profession, employment opportunities are available at a range of different companies and sectors and salaries are very competitive.
