Course content

Have you qualified as an accountant with the professional bodies within the last five years (or have additional relevant experience) and want to advance your career with a Masters qualification?

Promoting integration between professional practice and theory, the credits from your prior learning as a qualified accountant can fast-track you onto our MSc in Professional Accounting.

The programme entails completion of a module in Quantitative Research Methods, which will prepare you for an independent project. This will be made available remotely, allowing you to complete as a distance learner if you are unable to attend Swansea University.

Offering further flexibility, our MSc Professional Accounting offers two entry points in each academic year - May and September.
