Diploma in Accounting and Finance


Course Description

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, such as students with undergraduate degrees in arts, economics, law, business, science and engineering. It is also suitable for students with some background in accounting and finance who wish to extend their knowledge and understanding in areas of special interest within a flexible programme, or for those who require a greater depth of knowledge before pursuing postgraduate study. For those studying the Diploma, there is a clear route towards MSc level study within the Department, subject to satisfactory performance.

The Diploma provides a solid training and foundation in Accounting and Finance, including mathematical skills for more advanced master’s level elective courses. It allows students to specialise in accounting and finance, but also select from a wide range of courses available throughout the School.
