      Description

      Description
      All of our undergraduate programmes combine a range of compulsory modules that you must study in your first year before giving you significant freedom to pick optional modules in later years to allow you to focus in on your own interests and specialisation.
      Our BSc Accounting and Finance is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), meaning that graduates will be exempt from the CIMA professional examinations. Swansea also offers a number of exemptions from ACCA examinations that are possible from University study. This means that graduates of this scheme may be exempt (depending on module selection) from 8 out of 9 of the ACCA ‘Fundamentals’ examinations.
