Three year course

The IS2 is the equivalent to second year level study of a typical four-year Scottish undergraduate degree. This programme provides an intensive combination of Business subjects with extra Mathematics and English academic literacy skills. Upon successful completion of the IS2, you will continue to the final two years of your chosen degree course with the University of Dundee.

If you choose the Masters of Accountancy (MAcc) as your continuation degree this is a 4-year option as the Masters of Accountancy programme requires 3 years of study after the International Stage Two programme. In this four-year programme option you can achieve an integrated Master’s degree with a Bachelors of Science equivalent achieved in 3 years, before studying Master’s level modules in the final year to receive the MAcc qualification. The MAcc has been co-designed with the ACCA and as a result is fully accredited by them. Students that complete the MAcc programme obtain exemption from all of the ACCA’s Knowledge and Skills papers.
