Description

This course is a professionally-oriented qualification, which is consistently ranked highly in major UK league tables. You will gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to operate effectively in the fast paced world of multinational companies and global financial markets.

In collaboration with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), the UPP enables selected students to gain professional work experience during an intercalated year. This involves working in an accounting role with an ICAEW member organisation during the third year of the course. Depending on the organisation, you may also be able to take professional ACA exams during the placement which will form the first year of the ACA training contract. You can work in the UK or overseas, before returning to WBS for the final year of the course. The programme forms 10% of the overall degree classification.

How will I learn?

This may include preparing for seminars and lectures by reading set texts, working through problem sets, participating in group work, writing essays and reports, and revising for tests and examinations.

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed through a combination of end of year examinations and on-going assessments, which may include essays, research assignments, projects, case study analysis, class tests, presentations and group work.
