There’s growing demand from businesses around the world for qualified accounting and finance professionals. This programme is designed to match the requirements of the UK’s accounting bodies, allowing you to take significant steps towards becoming a qualified accountant, as well as developing skills essential for all kinds of business careers.
The Surrey Business School has a fantastic track record for graduate employment. We make use of guest speakers from business and industry, and embed our own internationally renowned research into your studies.
You’ll explore the core elements of accounting and finance in detail, through modules on financial accounting, management accounting, auditing, taxation, corporate finance and financial risk.
Our BSc Accounting and Finance (with Foundation Year) course also delves into various aspects of business operations, from the challenges of managing people, processes and customers, to the way organisations operate within a global political, legal and social environment.
This blend of specific accounting and finance modules with a wider understanding of business gives you both a strong theoretical foundation in the subject and an appreciation of how accounting and finance theory is applied in real-world business situations.
We’re always looking to make it easier to access the education we offer, so we have launched the option of taking a degree with a foundation year.
A foundation year is an extra year of study at the start of your course that leads in to a full degree programme. It’s a great option if:
• You don’t have the grades for a full degree course • You have non-traditional qualifications or experience • You’re starting university after some time away from education • You’re looking for more support during the transition into university study.
During a foundation year you’ll learn about your chosen subject, develop your study skills and get used to university life. On successful completion of your foundation year, you’ll be ready to progress to the first year of your degree course.
As a foundation year student, you’ll be a full student of the University and part of our community. You’ll have access to all our campus facilities and support.
