About BSc Economics and Accounting 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 may be in a financial environment, in an accounting firm, in consulting or in the finance team of an organisation.

The integrated degree in economics and accounting allows you to study both subjects to a high level. The first two years contain mandatory units that will provide a deep and robust grounding in both disciplines an This will inform your choices in the final year when selecting from a wide range of optional units. You can choose two optional units in the first year.

One third of the final year is made up of two compulsory units: Advanced Financial Reporting and Management Accounting for Strategy. For the remaining two thirds you will choose from a range of options which must include at least two economics units.

This four-year course 'with Professional Placement' is available by transfer rather than by direct entry. You should apply to BSc Economics and Accounting 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.
