    Study Accounting

    Accounting is the process of preparation, presentation and interpretation of financial information. An accountant is responsible for collecting, sorting, summarising and presenting financial data, as well as helping organisations and individuals to make decisions about how their finances are utilised. Businesses will normally work with an accountant when reporting their income, and paying their taxes. You will learn the basics of accounting, as well as how to use the newer technologies to optimise your work.

    Coursework

    An undergraduate degree will give you a foundation knowledge of accounting. You will explore the roles of an accountant, and look at how they determine financial stability, wealth, profitability and liquidity. You will gain an understanding of working as a self-employed accountant, as well as working within a corporate organisation.

    Your accounting degree will normally be taught mainly through lectures and seminars. You may be given opportunities to take part in group projects, which will give you an insight into how you may deal with a client or account in a work environment. Some universities may offer you the option of a work placement year, but this is not guaranteed.
