Course content

Our MSc Accounting and Finance [Advanced Diploma route] is a unique programme which has been designed to provide you with the key knowledge and skills to enter a range of different careers in the fields of accountancy and finance.

This programme is unique in that it is aligned to the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) professional accountancy qualification and includes both accounting and finance modules. This means you will exit with a broad understanding of the contemporary issues across the disciplines, helping to make you more employable.

During the first three terms you will study BPP University’s Advanced Diploma in Accounting and Finance [ACCA route] which is fully accredited by the ACCA and has been designed so that the nine modules of the Advanced Diploma align to the nine Fundamentals Level papers (F1 to F9). For each module successfully completed during the course, you will qualify for an exemption for the relevant paper from the ACCA, as well as being awarded the Advanced Diploma on successful completion of all 9 papers. During the next three terms you will study our MSc Accounting and Finance which has been designed so that you can study for and take ACCA Professional Level examinations either during, or after, the programme.
