About BSc Economics and Accounting
By optimising our teaching to combine subject areas, we are able to offer you a genuinely integrated degree in Economics and Accounting, enabling you to study both disciplines in depth.
In the first two years you learn skills across the core disciplines of economics, accounting and finance. This allows you to specialise in the final year, when you can choose a range of units from economics, accounting, finance, management and law.
Most of the assessment that forms the final degree result takes the form of closed-book examinations, a feature that is extremely credible with your potential future employers. Work is set to help you practise problem-solving and essay-writing skills, supported by constructive comments and regular feedback from experienced tutors.
ICAEW Foundation bursary
We are pleased to announce an ICAEW Foundation bursary of £4,000 per annum to one of our applicants for September 2016 entry. This sits with ICAEW’s own wider objectives of broadening access to the profession. The bursary recipient will demonstrate an interest in and aptitude for accountancy in addition to coming from a financially disadvantaged background.
ICAEW will stay in touch with them throughout the course of their studies and feature them on their website.
