Accountants are best known for validating company accounts – or auditing – but they also devise and operate financial systems, conduct investment analysis, advise on business matters, and handle individuals’ and corporations’ tax affairs.
Kent Business School has expert accounting staff from the business world and our links with global business ensure that our teaching is always internationally relevant.
Our Accounting & Finance degree responds to the needs of the profession and is accredited by the UK’s accountancy bodies. We also offer a qualifying taxation module, which is not available at many other universities.
Kent Business School (KBS) provides a friendly, student-focused environment, which helps you to make the most of your studies. Based in our brand-new building, you also benefit from up-to-date teaching facilities.
The programme begins with an introduction to accounting, including computer-aided systems, economics and, if you choose, business law. You then go on to focus in greater depth on subjects such as strategic management, investments and the role of the accountant in international markets.
You can choose from a wide range of accounting and finance options in your final year of study, allowing you to develop specialist knowledge.
You spend a year between Stages 2 and 3 at one of our worldwide approved partner universities. For a full list, please see Go Abroad. Places are subject to availability, language and degree programme.
