Overview

This course is about more than just numbers: it’s about the art of gaining insight into financial information. It’ll provide you with excellent prospects for a rewarding career.

To become a chartered accountant you’ll need to satisfy the requirements of professional accounting bodies. Our course is designed specifically with their requirements in mind, in order to maximise the number of exemptions from their exams. Currently the course has 42 individual exemptions across six of the world’s largest professional bodies. The exemptions mean you’ll be able to enter the job market having already undertaken a significant portion of your professional qualification.

The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at the Times Higher Education Awards 2015. We’re also undergoing a full re-accreditation process with EPAS who require some of the highest levels of relevance, rigour and internationalisation.

Career opportunities

Many of our graduates move into one of the big four accounting firms or into a role in industry accounting, taking up training contracts and completing professional qualifications.

As an accountant you’ll undertake financial audits, manage financial systems and budgets, and provide professional advice. As you progress in your career, you may move into wider leadership roles. One in six of the UK’s top 100 chief executives started out with a finance or accounting degree.

You can also undertake further study at postgraduate level with a course such as our Forensic Accounting MSc. If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.
