Accounting and Finance with Study Abroad - Durham University

Throughout the BA Accounting and Finance you’ll study a breadth and depth of accounting and finance subjects giving you the opportunity to take your knowledge to a new level. Areas of study may include accounting information, the legal, regulatory and social context within which accounting operates. What’s more, if you choose the relevant modules, you may gain exemption from some of the ACA, ACCA and CIMA examinations once you’ve completed your degree. Just another small step that will help make your way up the career ladder a little easier. **Flexibility** Subject to optional module choice and successful completion of your first year – it may be possible to change your degree path to either Accounting and Management or Finance. (If you require a Tier 4 visa will need to check this in advance with the Tier 4 regulations which are in place at the time). **Year 1** In the first year, compulsory modules will provide you with an introduction to accountancy and the key fundamentals to examine and evaluate modern financial markets. Typical modules may include introductions to financial and management accounting, economics, finance and mathematics and statistics. This compulsory core will be complimented by an optional module from the areas of business, global economics or foreign languages **Year 2** In the second year, compulsory modules allow you continue your studies in accounting and finance with a choice of optional modules considering the broader financial context including economics, taxation and law and the opportunity to study a foreign language. **Year 3** You may decide to study at one of our exchange universities for a full-year study placement period in your third year of study and this then effectively becomes the third year of a four year degree. Funding opportunities (open to both EU and non-EU students) may be available through scholarships offered by the host institution, the British Council and/or other funding bodies. For up to date information on locations and funding, please go to www.durham.ac.uk/international/studyabroad The offer of a place on a ‘study abroad’ degree does not imply that Durham University Business School guarantees to place you with one of our partner institutions, nor a partner of the your choice. All study abroad programmes are subject to approval by the Business School. Some partner relationships have restricted access and so are not available to everyone. The Business School, in association with the University, will assist you in applying for a study abroad place, but it is your responsibility to apply for such a place, and the right of the Business School/University to allocate you available places as it deems best. In the event that a you are unable to obtain a study abroad place, transfer to the equivalent ‘non-study abroad’ degree is guaranteed provided you are eligible to transfer on academic grounds. In line with Home Office rules, if you are from outside the EU you will transfer onto the ‘with study abroad’ degree only once you have successfully secured a placement (normally at the end of your second year of study). Therefore due to visa requirements, we recommend that international students interested in the study abroad year as part of your degree apply for this when making your application to us via UCAS. **Year 4** Moving to a more research-led teaching orientation in the third year, you are required to produce a double module Dissertation in an area of accounting and finance areas. Additionally, you will study two compulsory modules exploring the world of accounting. You will have the option to choose two modules from a range of business, accounting and finance options. You may choose to continue your study of a foreign language. We review course structures and core content (in light of e.g. external and student feedback) every year, and will publish finalised core requirements for 2020 entry from September 2019.
