List of degree courses at UK universities for accounting or finance

Getting a job as an accountant or in finance is one of the top career choices nowadays. Jobs pay well, there are numerous opportunities for advancement, and many accountants and finance specialists even end up working overseas. To get the top jobs though, you need a degree in accounting or finance. This list of degree courses at UK universities can help.

Bradford University School of Management - At Bradford University, you can obtain a BSc (Hons) in Accounting and  Finance. The course takes 3-4 years and the school accepts around 100 students each year. You'll study basic accounting and finance modules, and can choose your non-core subjects from a list of other modules depending upon your future career goals.

When you complete your degree course, you'll be exempt from taking examinations at the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA), Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and several other exam boards, which means you'll qualify as a professional accountant even faster. brad.ac.uk/management/programmes
