Description

Our BA Accounting with Economics (including Year Abroad) provides a firm grounding in accounting and helps you apply the concepts and theories of economics to the world of business. You spend your third year abroad. Your study of accounting includes modules in financial and management accounting. Financial 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. You study microeconomics in your second year but can tailor the study of economics in your third year depending on your preferences. Options include Macroeconomics, International Trade and Environmental Economics.

Course Content

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).
Please note that module information on our course finder provides a guide to course content and may be subject to review on an annual basis.
