Thinking of becoming an accountant? Or looking to develop a strong background in finance and accounting as a way of gaining an edge in business? This course is about more than just numbers: it’s about the art of gaining insight into financial information. It’ll provide you with excellent prospects for a rewarding career. To become a chartered accountant you’ll need to satisfy the requirements of professional accounting bodies. Our course is designed specifically with their requirements in mind, in order to maximise the number of exemptions from their exams. Currently the course has 42 individual exemptions across six of the world’s largest professional bodies. The exemptions mean you’ll be able to enter the job market having already undertaken a significant portion of your professional qualification. The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at the Times Higher Education Awards 2015. We’re also undergoing a full re-accreditation process with EPAS who require some of the highest levels of relevance, rigour and internationalisation.
