Accounting (BSc): 3-year, full-time, Stratford

Year of Entry


Start date

October 2017




Fully Approved




3 years full-time


    2-3 evenings a week, October to July

      Accounting demands a range of transferable skills, including quantitative, analytical and decision-making skills, and perceptive abilities. You will develop a good understanding of accounting and the environment in which it operates, and the ability to apply a wide range of accounting skills and competencies, from preparing financial statements to interpreting complex material and relating theory to practice. What’s more, you will learn supervisory and management skills that will give you the confidence to take on more challenges in the workplace.

      This programme has been designed to allow you to focus predominantly on accounting modules. The number of compulsory management modules is significantly fewer than in the BA Accounting and Management, replaced instead by compulsory accounting modules. However, the study of management remains an important part of the course.

      The BSc Accounting attracts students from both the public and private sectors, including administrators, clerical workers and managers, as well as the self-employed. Because it is taught entirely by evening study, you are able to combine your academic studies with daytime commitments.

      The majority of our students work or care for a family, so you will be learning with people from a wide range of backgrounds and with a wide range of experiences. This creates a stimulating and supportive learning environment. Our tutorial/seminar sessions give you a chance to interact with your peers and develop insights into analysing and interpreting a wide and varied subject matter.

      This course is also available for full-time evening study over 3 years in central London and part-time evening study over 4 years in central London and in Stratford.
