The BA (Hons) Professional Accountancy is a three-year Honours degree designed for students holding advanced qualifications who wish to pursue a career in accountancy. The degree provides significant exemption from the professional examinations of the ACCA, CIMA and CIPFA.
By studying towards this degree, you'll learn that accountancy involves the preparation and interpretation of financial information to enable investors, lenders, management, employees, government and others to make financial decisions.
Amplify Trading Boot Camp
The course also includes an innovative week-long global financial trading and training boot camp run by our partner Amplify. The boot camp won the CFA Institute Innovative Delivery of Education (IDEA) global award and gives you the chance to trade futures contracts on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. By letting you trade in real time, but with virtual money, the boot camp bridges the gap between an academic understanding of financial markets and how they function in practice.
Student Managed Investment Fund
Our students have established a Student Managed Investment Fund (SMIF), with support of our academics within the Accounting and Finance Division. The SMIF allows you to gain practical experience of managing investments with real money. A student-led project, it will help you to enhance your employability before you graduate – giving you exceptional practical understanding of theoretical aspects of investment valuation.
The programme consists of modules that are accredited by the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants, the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and the Chartered Institute of Public Finance.
Please note that the BA (Hons) Professional Accountancy is NOT accredited by ICAS (Institute of Chartered Accountants in Scotland). Students wishing to obtain an ICAS accredited degree should register for the BAcc (Hons) Accountancy or the BAcc (Hons) Accountancy and Finance degrees.
