You can have a head start in the process of becoming a qualified accountant, thanks to the exemptions provided by this course towards the exams of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.
Accountancy has long been a popular destination for graduates because of its excellent career prospects. The average starting salary for graduates with degrees in accounting and finance is above the national average. What’s more, among Chief Executives of Britain’s top 100 companies in 2010 one in six had a background in accounting or finance.
Sunderland is a top place to study accounting and finance, with the University being recognised by The Guardian University Guide 2012 as having the no.1 business school in the North East. 85% of business graduates from Sunderland enter employment or further study within 6 months of graduating, based on figures from the Destination of Higher Education Leavers Survey 2010.
Right from the start, you’ll notice Sunderland’s supportive atmosphere for your studies. There is a Getting Started programme (before you arrive), a Welcome Week where you get to know your tutors, planned one-to-one ‘programme time’ with the course leader, and support and advice from your personal tutor.
There are two start dates for this course: September and January. For more information please see the entry requirements page.
