Our BSc Accounting and Management combines two disciplines of central importance in contemporary society. Your study of accounting gives you an academic grounding in financial and management accounting. Your financial and accounting modules not only focus on the preparation of financial statements, but also on theoretical aspects of accounting such as the need for accounting standards and conceptual frameworks.
Management accounting is concerned with supplying information to internal users and topics include costing, budgeting and performance evaluation. Your study of management provides you with knowledge of the processes and practices relating to the management and co-ordination of organisations.

The special characteristics of our courses are flexibility and choice. In your first year, you usually take four or five modules that include pre-requisite(s) for your course but, in many cases, mean you can try subjects you have not come across before. If you are taking a humanities or social science, then you have the greatest choice, as most of our first-year modules do not assume any specialist knowledge.
With a small number of exceptions, if you successfully complete the first year of your BA, then you are qualified to enter the second year of that course and a range of other courses: for example, if you take economics, politics, philosophy and sociology, then you have a choice of at least nine possible single or joint honours courses at the end of your first year. This means you can change your course, providing you have taken the appropriate pre-requisites and places are available. We offer a range of optional modules in your second- and final-years and most courses allow you to undertake a final-year project, an individual piece of research on a topic that interests you.
We operate a credit framework for our awards, which is based on principles widely used across the UK university sector. Each module has a credit rating attached and our standard three-year course consists of 360 credits (120 credits in your first year, and 240 credits across your second and final years).
