This course has been designed to develop the knowledge, skills, research interests and career prospects of those who work, or wish to work, in finance, treasury management or accountancy. It’s especially useful if you’re a graduate with little or no accounting experience, as it offers the opportunity to study modules which will cover this shortfall and to undertake an 8-week internship.
If you’re a graduate member of professional accountancy body you may be able to claim Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning for exemption from up to three modules, allowing you to concentrate on developing your knowledge of accounting and finance relevant to the current market. The course provides exemption from seven papers of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) exams. The Westminster Business School is one of just three UK institutions where students qualify for so many ACCA exemptions on completion of a one-year course.
You’ll need a UK Honours degree (Second Class or above) or international equivalent in accounting, business or economics, or in any other discipline with evidence of quantitative and computer skills. Alternatively, you should hold graduate membership of any UK professional accountancy body or international equivalent. Graduate members of a professional accountancy body may claim exemptions from two core modules – Managerial Accounting and Financial Accounting Policy.
If English is not your first language, you will need an IELTS score of 6.5, with a minimum score of 6 in each element.
As a postgraduate finance student you will have access to the Financial Markets Suite, which uses the Bloomberg computer system to monitor real-time financial market movements and trends. It’s a resource available to very few UK universities, and one which provides a modern and progressive teaching environment combining finance theory with practice.
