Open to UK and EU students only, our BSc Accounting (including foundation year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate course. This four-year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. Our compulsory English language and academic skills module supplements your academic subjects. Understanding the financial drivers of business underpins leadership, strategy and planning, and governance and ethics are essential for a fast-paced career. You are taught by experts with both academic and private sector experience giving you a firm grounding in all aspects of accounting. Financial accounting is concerned with the preparation of financial statements which will be used by external parties. Management accounting is concerned with providing information to assist managers in their decision-making. As the study of finance is essential to our accounting students, your second year includes finance modules to give you an understanding of how financial theory can aid decision-making in organisations.
