This course is so closely tied into real-world professional requirements that, when you've successfully completed it, you'll be exempted from nine exam papers for an accountancy qualification from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).

Accountancy has long been a popular destination for graduates because of its excellent career prospects. The average starting salary for graduates with degrees in accounting and finance is above the national average. Half of the Chief Executives of Britain’s top 100 companies in 2013 had a background in accountancy or financial management background (source: Robert Half FTSE 100 CEO Tracker).

You will enhance your expertise in decision-making about financial resources. You will also develop fresh approaches to solving problems at work by integrating knowledge from a variety of topics.

Sunderland is one of the first universities in the UK to introduce employability modules across all years of an undergraduate degree. These help you strengthen the six key attributes of being capable, enquiring, creative, enterprising, ethical and global in outlook. The modules also help you identify your strengths and aspirations, and plan for personal development.

By studying in London, you will be in a world centre of business. You will also have opportunities to build a global network of contacts as London is home to over 100,000 international students.
