Nottingham University Business School is recognised as an ICAEW Partner in Learning, working with ICAEW in the professional development of students.

Year one

Your first year on the BSc Accountancy programme serves as a broad foundation to the study of a range of business disciplines, including modules in financial accounting, assurance, principles of taxation, business law, microeconomics, macroeconomics, quantitative methods, organisation studies and business computing.

During your first year, you will also be liaising with PwC to identify which office you will work in over the next three years.

Year two

After taking a block period of study in early September on audit and assurance, you will spend September to December on a paid placement with PwC. The office you are based in will be your office for the rest of the time on the programme, which will help you make friends and build lasting relationships with others who work in the same office.

While on placement, you will be working on real client work, applying the knowledge you have learnt earlier in the course. You will return to your studies in January, where you will take modules on tax compliance, financial accounting and reporting, financial management and management strategy.
