You will require the equivalent of an upper second class UK honours degree in Accounting. Alternative qualifications and all non-UK qualifications, which are considered equivalent to a UK honours degree, would be subject to approval by the Programme Director. Applications from students with a professional background rather than a degree will be assessed in accordance with the principles of the University’s AP(E)L policy, and the practice and precedents of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
Months of entry
The MSc Accounting offers candidates the opportunity to attain a postgraduate degree from a Russell Group university and simultaneously gain exemptions (credit for prior learning) from examinations for the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).
Thorough and stimulating, this degree programme includes specialist coverage of a range of topic areas within the disciplines of accounting and finance, including corporate reporting, auditing and assurance, taxation, finance, business strategy, business management and professional ethics. You will develop quantitative and qualitative skills to enable you to make realistic business recommendations and solve problems in complex scenarios. Business awareness will need to be demonstrated at strategic, operating and transactional levels, and will include issues of sustainability. The use of technical knowledge and professional judgement will be required to analyse data from multiple sources in order to evaluate alternatives, and determine appropriate solutions.
