The programme will provide students with a sound foundation in accountancy, to enable them to enter the accountancy profession and progress through professional body awards. It covers financial and management accounting, audit, taxation, financial management and the legal environment. SAGE is the industry-standard accounting software for small-medium businesses and students will have the opportunity to gain SAGE qualifications alongside the Level 4 Financial Accounting module. We are working to gain exemptions from Chartered Accountancy associations to accelerate students accountancy careers and enhance their employability prospects. This is a new course starting in 2017 and is currently subject to validation.
