Accounting and finance play a crucial role in the management and survival of businesses and contribute to the economic growth of a country. The world needs accountants and finance professionals who can record, classify, summarise, interpret and communicate financial information necessary for making informed strategic choices for businesses to grow. These professionals will also help businesses follow correct accounting standards and comply with the law.
AIA – The Association of International AccountantsThe BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance at the University of Bedfordshire will help you develop a better understanding of accounting standards and financial regulations and provide the skills and techniques needed for making informed investment decisions in dynamic business environments.
This course will also help you understand the power and limitations of accountancy and financial techniques and how they complement other subject areas, particularly those which fall under the wider umbrella of business.
You can also benefit from professional body exemptions. The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) awards exemptions from its F1 to F9 papers for those students successfully completing relevant units. The Association of International Accountants (AIA) awards exemptions from its foundation and professional level 1 papers for those students successfully completing relevant units.
The assessment strategy on this course is bounded to a large degree by PSRB requirements, thus, unseen tests and examinations dominate the types of assessment employed on the course. However, their format and type vary from online objective tests to written multi-task examinations. Compulsory and objective questions will be used to encourage you to study across the breadth of the syllabus, whereas the multi-task questions will assess your ability to simultaneously, assimilate a wide range of information, apply and justify your choice of several ideas and concepts to make informed decisions or recommendations.
Accounting and finance is not only about numbers and the manipulation of numbers, rather, it is a systematic way of preparing, reporting, presenting and analysing financial data to inform business or investment decisions.
You will develop a number of transferable skills including the ability to present your findings, both verbally and in writing, in a professional, clear and concise manner.
Written reports are designed in a way that promotes critical thinking as you move up the stages of the course; from knowledge, comprehension and simple explanations in the early stages to application, analysis, appraisal and synthesis as you get closer to graduation.
In your final capstone (specialist project) unit, you will be required to produce an individual and independent piece of work which will place demands on your academic judgement and integrity whilst being the most challenging but yet enjoyable and rewarding experience you will encounter.
We will consider you as an individual and take into account all elements of your application, not just your qualifications. We are looking for breadth and depth in your current studies and enthusiasm for the subject you wish to study.
