About BSc Accounting and Finance with Professional Placement

This four-year course involves three years of study at the University of Bristol plus a professional placement in your third year. Your placement will be in a financial environment, perhaps in an accounting firm or the finance team of an organisation in another industry or the not-for-profit sector.

The placement year will enhance your understanding of the areas of accounting and finance encountered in your studies. You will also develop an understanding of how an organisation operates and learn to take on responsibility within a team. During the placement you will have the opportunity to complete the first stage of the professional accounting examinations of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), with some exemptions from exams already available on the basis of the modules studied during the first two years of your degree.

This course is available by transfer rather than by direct entry. You should apply to BSc Accounting and Finance and register your interest to add a professional placement once you have joined us. Placement opportunities are based on first-year examination results and a successful application to a participating employer.
