Description

Introduction:

Keen to become an accountant? Then you'll know you ideally need both a university degree and a recognised professional qualification.
This course provides the first part, to a superb standard, and it also helps you start towards the second, as many professional bodies will grant you significant exemptions from their exams when you have a Stirling degree.
We have a great deal to offer you. Our teaching and research both have superb reputations for quality. We also provide a great range of courses and an exciting and rewarding system of learning and assessment.‌

We also offer a BAcc Honours degree in Accountancy and Finance, which provides considerable scope for you to study a variety of topics. The BAcc Honours degree in Accountancy can also be combined with other subjects, please see below.
Accounting & Finance at Stirling is ranked 3rd in Scotland and 14th in the UK, according to the 2017 Good University Guide.
