As the accounting and financial reporting world becomes more globalised, this course concentrates on the developing international standards adopted by the key trading blocks.

You will learn about the international reporting practices adopted by every company listed on a stock exchange within the EU and many companies further afield.

We encourage you to recognise how financial information makes a contribution to society, and to consider where it might cause or inflate societal problems.

We have close links with the accountancy profession, on a local, national and international level and across organisations of all sizes. You’ll benefit from the experience of practicing accountants, many of whom are graduates of our degree.

Our Accountancy degree offers one of the most comprehensive and extensive list of accreditations in the UK. It is fully accredited by ICAS, ACCA, AIA and Chartered Accountants Ireland. It also carries part accreditation from CIMA, ICAEW and CIPFA.

Many students do an internship with an accountancy firm during their holidays, combining their study with work experience. You will be able to interact directly with employers.

“I was fortunate enough to secure an internship with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in the summer between third and fourth year, which gave me a wider range of experience. It was also extremely beneficial as I was offered a graduate position starting the September after I finished uni, which I happily accepted.”
