Through this Accounting (Honours) course at the University of Westminster, you will develop a detailed knowledge of the applied aspects of accounting, together with the team-working, problem-solving, communication skills and commercial awareness which companies need in a rapidly changing and complex global business landscape.
The course offers flexibility in the accounting areas in which you might choose to specialise. There is an emphasis on international developments in accounting and ﬁnance, and an opportunity to study a foreign language at each credit level.
You will be also able to develop practical skills through the use of accounting software such as Sage, and the Financial Market Suite (FMS). The FMS utilises the Bloomberg platform, a state-of-the-art teaching and research resource used widely by leading global financial institutions.
If you are studying a Bachelor's degree at Westminster Business School, you can choose to take a year's break from your studies in your third year to do a placement.
A placement year is a great way of gaining practical work experience within an industry relevant to your studies. It increases your confidence and skills, and boosts your employability. It gives you a chance to apply the theoretical techniques you have learnt during your undergraduate degree so far to a real business environment while you work as a member of an established organisation.
