      Course programme

      This university degree programme has been traditionally popular. Students are invariably attracted to the diverse and rewarding career opportunities that are opened up to those who gain good accountancy qualifications. A large number of our students progress to a career in accountancy with the accredited degree programme offered at Cardiff Business School.

      The first year modules provide an introduction to financial and management accounting and finance together with a wide range of other business related subjects including economics, management, applied statistics and mathematics, law and marketing.

      In the second and third year, students take a number of core modules that provide them with a sound theoretical knowledge and understanding of professional procedures together with an awareness of current developments in accounting. Students then choose from a range of options in specialised aspects of national or international accounting, law, and areas of management and marketing, to tailor their modules to suit their career aspirations.

      A number of classes have previously been taught by practising accountants currently working for global firms. Each year we organise a range of skills-based workshops in partnership with the large accounting firms and the professional accounting bodies.

This is due to the fact that some modules have limited numbers of places available, which are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, while others have minimum student numbers required before they will run, to ensure that an appropriate quality of education can be delivered; some modules require students to have already taken particular subjects, and others are core or required on the programme you are taking. Modules may also be limited due to timetable clashes, and although the University works to minimise disruption to choice, we advise you to seek advice from the relevant School on the module choices available.
