Description

Advertisement

This programme gives students the opportunity to take a professional qualification within the course, the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) Certificate from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW). The intention is that, along with the MSc, this will both prepare students for a financial role within a company and show potential employers that the student not only has theoretical, but also practical professional knowledge.

Those students who do not wish to take the IFRS certificate have an alternative research-based programme whilst their colleagues are working on the IFRS material.

We are currently negotiating potential accreditation from a number of accounting bodies including ACCA, CIMA, IAI and ICAEW.

The academic programme is up-to-date and provides a high level of understanding of both theoretical and numerical material. The university has market-leading financial databases (the Thomson-Reuters Eikon suite) to support both the teaching and the individual study of students.Online product certification using this database can be achieved during the course of the programme which will put any student in an advantageous position with potential employers, as they are already trained and certified. All students finish their programme with a dissertation, giving them the opportunity to show their ability to address and answer a research issue under the supervision of academic staff.

Contents

Bringing together faculty interests, knowledge, experiences and a strong commitment to graduate employability prospects, the programme consists of eight modules and a dissertation/project which is designed to enable you to prosper in what is a complex and competitive and continually changing market place or to prepare for further study if that is your career aim.

References are not required in order for applicants to submit an application. They are not usually required in order for a decision to be made but in certain cases applicants may be asked to provide a single academic reference at the request of the academic selector.

The English Language Requirement for all College of Arts and Social Sciences Masters programmes is an IELTS of 6.5 with 6.0 in the writing and reading (or equivalent PTE or Cambridge Advanced or Cambridge Proficiency. TOEFL iBT can be submitted for EU/non Tier 4 applicants only).

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6.5

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
