Description

As the accounting and financial reporting world becomes more globalized we concentrate on the developing international standards adopted by the key trading blocks.

You’ll discover the power and limitations of accountancy as a tool in society and the financial techniques you’ll need to help society function.

Dundee has close links with the accountancy profession. You’ll benefit from the experience of practicing accountants and understand their contemporary challenges through their insights and guest lectures.

A number of students opt to undertake an internship with an accountancy firm during their vacation, combining their study with work experience. The degree also provides the opportunity to study overseas at one of our partner institutions in Europe, Australia, Canada and the USA.

We are focused on providing a stimulating, supportive, friendly and well-organised environment for students. This commitment was recognised by our rating of ‘Excellent’ by the Scottish Higher Education Funding Council.
