How the Course Works
Tailor what you study to suit your own interests and career aspirations. This degree is part of a larger portfolio of 12 courses covering business, accounting and marketing.
The first two years covers a common curriculum including the basics of business, accounting, and marketing meaning there’s the flexibility to swap between all of or some of the courses depending when you join.
The course options within the Accounting stream are:
- BA (Hons) Accounting & Finance
- BA (Hons) Accounting & Finance with Law
- BA (Hons) Accounting & Finance with People Management
- BA (Hons) Accounting & Finance with Business Analytics
Joining us in Year 1: You can choose to specialise within Accounting, add one of the extra subjects above to it, or even move to a marketing or business course in year 2. In year 3 you can still move within any of the courses in the Accounting stream.
Joining us in Year 2 or 3: You can transfer within the Accounting stream at the start of both years except for Accounting and Finance with Law.
Shape your own learning journey
Our academics will provide advice and full support about transferring, and help you choose your modules as you progress through the years.
Your chosen specialism will be reflected in your degree title e.g. BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance with People Management – or if you choose not to specialise, you will graduate in BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance.
Transfering between the courses is straightforward, so only apply for one of them.
