Build on your existing knowledge and qualifications to achieve an honours degree in International Accounting – with just one year of top-up studies. With its strong global perspectives, this degree will help you play a major role in the financial success of any organisation that does business internationally.
Our BA (Hons) International Accounting (Top-up) equips you with the skills and knowledge you need to generate and or support new business opportunities and income for organisations worldwide. It has been introduced at a time of growing demand for high-calibre accounting professionals who can work in international settings.
The course is specially designed for students who already have a HND – or equivalent qualification from overseas – in a relevant subject like Business Management, Finance or Accounting. It enables international students to achieve a highly regarded UK honours degree within a year. It will also appeal to mature students with significant professional experience who could use the degree as a platform for promotion and improved career prospects.
We will give you in-depth technical knowledge of financial practices and processes, plus a thorough understanding of how they relate to the global business environment. You can also choose from optional modules, covering subjects such as international taxation and financial reporting, so that you can tailor your degree to match your professional interests, career ambitions and professional developments in your home country.
Thanks to our strategic partnerships with key employers, you could get involved in live projects and fieldtrips to translate theory into practice. A recent visit to Chatsworth House featured an informative talk by the Chief Executive of the Devonshire Trust and the Head of Visitor Experience for the Chatsworth Group. Such opportunities deepen your understanding of the wider business world.
To help broaden your international outlook further still, you could take part in optional overseas fieldtrips. On a trip to Copenhagen, our students visited the Louisiana Modern Art Museum to learn more about the problem of art fraud, bringing to life themes such as business ethics, forensic accounting, audit and assurance.
Our accounting and finance teaching staff are all professionally qualified, with industry as well as academic experience. Because they have also taught on courses for professional bodies such as ACCA and CIMA, they can keep you up to date with latest standards and developments.
Our staff have recently edited an influential book entitled Contemporary Issues in Accounting – the Current Developments in Accounting Beyond the Numbers, exploring the challenges and opportunities which are likely to impact accounting professionals in the near future.
Further networking opportunities are arranged through our dynamic Accounting Society, established and run by students. They organise activities such as mentoring sessions, social and fundraising events.
