Overview

Accountants are best known for validating company accounts – or auditing – but they also devise and operate financial systems, conduct investment analysis, advise on business matters, and handle individuals’ and corporations’ tax affairs. Our Accounting & Finance degree responds to the needs of the profession and is accredited by the UK’s accountancy bodies.


The programme is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills relevant to the practice of accounting and finance within the economic, legal and social environment, preparing you for your career.


Kent Business School has expert accounting staff from the business world and our links with global business ensure that our teaching is always internationally relevant.


Our BSc Accounting and Finance degree programme

Studying Accounting and Finance at Kent you learn core accounting and finance theory, and gain an understanding of the role of accounting and finance in business and society. You’ll explore core subjects such as Financial Accounting, Business Law, Economics and Strategic Management. You will have the opportunity to tailor your course to specialist areas including taxation, auditing, international investment and banking.


The programme is accredited by five international professional accounting bodies:


  • ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants)
  • CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants)
  • ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales)
  • CIPFA (Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy)
  • CPA Australia (Certified Practising Accountant)
  • For more information on these accreditations see the Careers section.


On successful completion of your degree, should you decide to qualify as an accountant, you will be eligible for exemptions from some of the professional examinations.


On our flexible programme, you take a broad range of compulsory modules in your first and second years. You then select from a variety of options in your final year, furthering your knowledge of specialist topics.


You will have excellent opportunities to experience accounting and finance in action through hands-on experience via in-class live case studies from our visiting speakers, enterprise challenges and company visits.


The ICAEW run an annual Speed-meeting event with final year students, giving you the opportunity to meet recruiting employers. In addition CIMA regularly visit to give talks and host business games.


You’ll gain practical skills through real-world problem-solving exercises including access to our Bloomberg Suite, supervised by academic and industry experts. Becoming familiar with the technology used in the financial workplace can be an advantage in a competitive job market. You will also have an opportunity to gain entrepreneurial and life skills that enable you to accelerate your innovative thinking into practice.
