The programme will enable students to combine their academic study for a BSc Accountancy with relevant and high quality work experience at KPMG, and the opportunity to achieve Chartered Accountant (CA) status on completion of additional elements of the CA qualification following graduation. It will enable students to directly apply aspects of their academic education in a professional setting and reflect on their experiences as they progress through the programme.
The programme aims to develop the intellectual, analytical and communication capabilities of students to levels that can prepare them for successful careers as professional accountants, together with the transferable skills that are necessary to apply their capabilities and technical knowledge in new and challenging contexts across accounting, finance and commerce.
It will adopt a variety of teaching and learning strategies to promote high levels of knowledge, understanding and competence about what accounting is, how it is applied and how accounting measurements affect our behaviour as individuals, organisations and societies. Studies of core disciplines such as accounting, finance, information systems, economics, tax and law will be complemented by electives that enable students to broaden their knowledge in, for example, languages, arts and natural sciences.
The programme will provide an educational environment that stimulates and supports learning and personal development and utilises the extensive range of university support services to enrich the students' learning experience
