About the Diploma programme

The Diploma in Accounting and Finance is a qualification in its own right, designed for students with little or no background in accounting and finance. It would also be an ideal programme if you have some background in accounting and finance and would like to extend your knowledge and understanding in areas of special interest, or if you require a greater depth of knowledge before pursuing postgraduate study.

It is a flexible programme, providing a solid training and foundation in accounting and finance, including mathematical skills for more advanced master’s elective courses. You will be able to both specialise in accounting and finance, and select from a wide range of courses available throughout the School.

This programme is suitable for students with undergraduate degrees in arts, economics, law, business, science and engineering, as well as those with some background in accounting and finance. There is a clear route from the Diploma towards master's level study within the Department, subject to satisfactory performance.

The programme is housed within the Department of Accounting, which is widely recognised throughout Europe for its excellence in accounting and financial management research and education, as well as for its leading role in public policy issues. The interface between accounting and managers, organisations, institutions, public policy and regulatory bodies is a particular teaching and research strength of the Department.
