This four-year course involves three years of study at the University of Bristol plus a year of professional placement in your third year. Your placement will be in a financial environment, perhaps in an accounting firm or the finance team of an organisation in another industry or the not-for-profit sector.
The placement year will enhance your understanding of the areas of accounting and finance encountered in your studies. You will also develop an understanding of how an organisation operates and learn to take on responsibility within a team. Within the placement you will have the opportunity to complete the first stage of the professional accounting examinations of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), with some exemptions from exams already available on the basis of the modules studied during the first two years of your degree.
You can join this programme by transfer from one of our other accounting degrees after year one. You should initially apply to one of our other accounting degrees such as BSc Accounting and Finance and, once you have joined us, you can register your interest to add a professional placement. We will allocate placement opportunities to the best students on the basis of first-year examination results.
