BSc (Hons)/MSci Professional Accounting in Business

Our Professional Accounting in Business degree is strongly aligned to professional body qualifications, covering and providing exemptions for the first nine papers of the ACCA qualification, along with the opportunity to obtain exemptions from elements of both the CIMA and ICAEW ACA qualifications. Our degree has a strong focus on the application of technical skills learnt to real commercial contexts.

It's designed to enable you to fast track becoming a fully qualified Accountant with ACCA in as little as three years and develop the business skills required in professional finance teams. You’ll be guaranteed a finance-related internship (subject to eligibility criteria), and will regularly complete ‘simulated placements’ that are designed to mimic real-life projects.

Our programme has also been awarded Credit for Prior Learning with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) for their ACA professional qualification. This means that you will be able to apply for exemptions for 7 of the 15 exams, effectively having completed all of the certificate level exams and one from the professional level as part of completing your degree. 

Industry engagement is at the core of everything we do and you'll have industry workshops with professionals from global companies. Students have previously visited Lloyd's of London, IBM and Unilever. You'll be taught by Chartered Accountants that have worked for sector-leading companies such as Deloitte and PwC and you'll study in one of London's busiest business districts.

If you choose to study the Integrated Masters option, you will complete a fourth year that will enable you to become fully exam qualified with ACCA and gain a Masters qualification at the same time.
