About BSc Accounting and Management with Study Abroad

This exciting four-year programme gives you the opportunity to study abroad for a year, at one of our partner universities.

To join the programme, you will initially apply for our three-year BSc Accounting and Management. Then once you have joined us, you can register an interest to study abroad and write a personal statement explaining why you wish to go abroad and where you would like to go. If places for your chosen destination are oversubscribed, then we will grant the opportunities to the best applicants, based on your first-year examination results and the quality of your personal statement.

Your first and second years will be the same as for the three-year version of the programme; then your third year will be spent studying modules in Accounting and Management abroad.

After that you will return here for your fourth and final year.
