Roehampton is ranked 3rd in London for student satisfaction in Accounting (NSS 2021).
While developing your accounting knowledge and skills, you will develop yourself personally, become confident in your own values, apply your knowledge to solve problems, and ultimately learn to add value to any organisation.
Across the three years, you will undertake specialist ACCA-accredited accounting modules, which means when you graduate, you will be exempt from nine of the ACCA professional exams if you choose to work towards your full professional qualification.
The degree is also accredited by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), so you just need to take six CIMA exams to complete your CIMA qualification.
You will learn financial and management accounting techniques, including the preparation of financial reports. You will also explore the latest business issues such as the growth in digital commerce, developments in data analysis, and the dynamic nature of the global business environment.
In addition to this, you will be taught about people and project management, to complement your developing accounting skills.
Studying at Roehampton you will become highly employable and capable, with the knowledge and skills required by employers and professional accounting bodies.
*This currently applies to students in their first year only.
How you will learn
Your tutors have extensive experience across many accounting contexts and will demonstrate how your learning connects to, and impacts on, the real world.
Business Readiness and Extended Academic Induction modules will build your future employability throughout your degree, by developing your academic, leadership and management skills.
You will compile evidence of your developing knowledge, skills and attributes, and be able to clearly articulate your increasing ability to add value to organisations.
This course offers all students the option of a one-year paid work placement, to boost their employability even further. If you choose this route, you will take the placement following year two of your course, and then return to complete your degree.
