What will I study?
During your time studying Accounting and Finance you will cover subject areas including, Global Business Environment, Financial Accounting, International Auditing, Financial Management and UK Taxation. Studying such varied topics will help you understand how finance interacts with business and can underpin innovation and improvements, alongside developing key skills, such as problem solving, attention to detail and analytical thinking which will ensure you are well placed to enter the employment market.
During your foundation year you will have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals needed to progress to undergraduate study. You will study topic areas like, creativity, self-development, responsibility, business studies and inquiry based learning to provide you with a solid basis for your study of accounting and finance.
In your first year we are focused on providing you with all of the building blocks you need to create a solid foundation and understanding of the concepts, theories and models of accounting and finance. As you develop your understanding and abilities you will be expected to describe, explain and review all that you are learning as you complete the year.
During your second year, you will learn to apply, analyse and evaluate the principles and theories you have learned and be able to reference and apply them to contemporary situations. Being able to develop your skills by applying your knowledge to real life circumstances is important as this allows you to gain the confidence and ease to do so post-graduation.
In your final year, the emphasis will be on transitioning you from student to graduate. You will undertake more independent learning and develop your depth of understanding through a combination of critical analysis and evaluation. This will be shown through either a dissertation on a topic of your choice or a consultancy project, which involves independent research focusing on strategic business issues.
