The Graduate Diploma in Accounting at Ulster University is designed to offer you a route to become a chartered accountant.
The course is suitable for students with little or no previous knowledge of accounting and finance who wish to study these subjects further, or who wish to undertake postgraduate studies in accounting and finance but lack the depth of knowledge necessary to study at master’s level.
Throughout this fast-track conversion programme, you will develop your knowledge and understanding of the key aspects of accounting, finance and business.
The Graduate Diploma in Accounting will also help you to enhance your personal skills, as well as the subject-specific and professional skills you will need to be successful as an accountant.
Courses are continually reviewed to take advantage of new teaching approaches and developments in research, industry and the professions. Please be aware that modules may change for your year of entry. The exact modules available and their order may vary depending on course updates, staff availability, timetabling and student demand.
Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) for the purpose of exemption from some professional examinations through the Accredited degree accelerated route.
The programme is delivered over one academic year (late September - late June). It is a full-time course which is delivered through lectures and seminars and it is expected that students will undertake independent study.
Successful students can progress to the MSc Advanced Accounting.
This qualification will lead to careers in accounting, with graduates having acquired a basic knowledge of the core areas of accounting, as well as exemptions from professional examinations.
