What Is an Accounting Degree?
Accountants are responsible for the monitoring and recording of the flow of money through a business or organisation. The accountant must verify the accuracy of money transactions and make sure that the transactions are legal. An accountant might work privately, or in-house in any type of business.
What will I study?
Through accounting-specific modules you will learn to identify and solve complex accounting problems, and apply your skills and techniques to real-life business scenarios. Many degrees have specialist ACCA-accredited / CPA-accredited and CIMA-accredited modules, meaning you will be exempt from a number of the modules if you work towards the full professional qualification after graduation.
