In your first year, you are introduced to the fundamentals of financial accounting as well as economic theory and practice. You learn about different methods of analysis including statistics and econometrics which are relevant to all three subject areas.
In your second year of study, you further expand your knowledge in these areas.
In your final year of study, you can choose from a wide range of different modules allowing you to develop specialist knowledge on topics such as financial crises, monetary economics, taxation and auditing.
As part of this degree, you take a compulsory paid business placement between your second and final years. The placement runs for at least 44 weeks and starts between June and September, following your second-year examinations. Placements develop your skills and knowledge and increase your employability.
