Program Information

Degrees Offered:

MSc Accounting and Finance

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Accounting and Finance masters degree course consists of a core covering the main areas of accounting and corporate finance, and a research methods course that supports the dissertation. Options allow students to study particular aspects of accounting or taxation in more depth. There is a pathway within the programme that allows students to concentrate on research-oriented training and more advanced aspects of accounting and finance. Full-time study on the MSc Accounting and Finance course follows a schedule of half-day teaching blocks. A single module, for example, will be taught over six half-days, usually the same half-day each week e.g. six consecutive Monday mornings and half modules are taught over three half-days. Module teaching blocks will be scheduled on different half-days so that students will study several modules during the same period . Teaching takes place during the autumn, spring and summer terms with a few modules scheduled for evenings and the Easter vacation. These will usually be the optional modules but this is not guaranteed. Formal examinations take place in January and May/June each year at the end of each semester. If you pass the module assessments to a satisfactory standard you are permitted to continue work until September leading to the submission of an MSc dissertation.
