Auditing Courses

Auditing courses are generally combined with other key business subjects, such as accounting and finance. Auditing is usually combined with said subjects in order to help the students to develop a more rounded understanding of the world of finance and business.

The majority of auditing courses are offered at the postgraduate study level. Courses last for one year if you choose to study full-time, or three years if you choose to study part-time

Topics you can expect to study include risk management, strategic management, financial risk, advanced internal audit, internal audit practice, internal audit environment, and consultancy. Such a combination of topics will stand students in good stead when it comes to understanding auditing and business management.

Auditing courses are still fairly new, and were developed due to the attention paid to risk and assurance, especially from a political and socio-economic point of view. The skills that you will acquire from your degree include advanced numeracy skills, communication skills, and analytical skills, while a methodical approach to problem solving will also be honed.

 

Auditing is a postgraduate (Masters) course that usually requires that you hold a Bachelor’s degree. If you have not got a Bachelor’s degree, you may be accepted onto a course if you have relevant work experience or alternative qualifications. Leniency and credit exemption is sometimes permitted if you have evidence of solid practice-based experience. The entry requirements also vary depending on the institution you are applying to and you are advised to contact the institution directly for more information.
In general, students go on to embark on successful careers in fields such as accountancy, banking and insurance. There will also be a number of alternative careers that open up to you, such as careers in market research, retail management and the civil service.
