About BSc Accounting and Finance with Study in Continental Europe
This course is similar to BSc Accounting and Finance, but with your third year spent abroad at one of our partner universities before returning to the UK for your fourth and final year of study.
You will study the relevant language during years one and two before spending your third year studying Accounting, Business and Finance in the host language of a partner university in France, Germany, Italy or Spain. These four-year courses combine the challenging, broad academic content of all our Accounting degrees with an overseas dimension that reflects the multinational nature of modern business.
To study in France or Germany you need to start with at least AS-level grade B in French or German; to study in Italy or Spain you need at least GCSE grade A in Italian or Spanish.
