Elevate Your Financial Career

If you hold qualified accountant status from prior study with the ACCA, CIMA, ICAEW, or an equivalent professional body, you will receive six module exemptions (totalling 120 credits) from our standard MSc Accounting and Finance course. This entails completing just one module, the final Financial Management Project module (60 credits), to earn a full Master of Science award. This presents a unique opportunity to attain a comprehensive postgraduate qualification at significantly reduced tuition fees and within a shorter timeframe compared to undertaking the full 180-credit MSc course.

The Financial Management Project module offers you the chance to conduct an in-depth analysis of cutting-edge technologies in accounting and finance, such as blockchain, fintech, cloud computing, and distributed ledgers. This equips you with up-to-date skills and knowledge applicable immediately in contemporary business settings, bolstering your career progression across various accounting and finance roles.
