Course content

‌The MSc in Professional Accountancy is the first UK postgraduate master's qualification to combine masters level study with full professional body accreditation from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). The programme is fully accredited by the ACCA, a full member of the International Federation of Accountants, which operates in countries across the world. When you graduate from this course you can claim exemptions from ACCA Fundamental Papers: F1 to F9. This means that whatever country you’re from, your advanced standing in a professional education programme will be valued by businesses across the globe.

This degree can now also boast 2 additional accreditations, further enhancing its quality and international reputation. Accreditation from the Association of International Accountants (AIA), offering graduates of the degree exemption from their foundation level (A & B) and professional level 1 (C & D) exams. Offering our students the maximum level of exemptions with the AIA.

Accreditation from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), offering graduates of the degree exemptions from 6 of their papers (5 out of the 6 Certificate Level papers + 1 professional paper).

The course provides an international perspective on the study of the theory and practice of accounting, and enables students to graduate with a master’s degree in addition to the ACCA exemptions mentioned above.

All accountancy staff, including professors, are active as teachers and researchers. You’ll be working with a team who routinely push back the boundaries of knowledge in their subject area.
