Welcome to MSc Accounting and Finance. MSc Accounting and Finance is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and understanding of core accounting and finance principles. The programme provides students with the opportunity to gain a clear understanding of the joint role of accounting and finance in ensuring successful operations in a range of business settings. Students can develop their understanding of the key principles and practical skills required to prepare and analyse accounts and related financial information, and learn about financial management decision making and the methods used to raise finance for companies. This programme is available for both a September and February start. The course is offered with two separate pathways. Students can either complete one year of study or undertake a two-year course where one year is spent in Professional Practice to gain hands-on experience through a paid placement. Students will be responsible for sourcing their own paid placements but will be supported by dedicated employability specialists. Please note: the Professional Practice pathway is only available for a September start. How You Study The taught element of the programme consists of six compulsory modules and one optional module. Term 1 modules: Financial Accounting - Single Entity Decision Analysis for Managers Corporate Finance I Term 2 modules: Financial Accounting - Group Reporting Current Issues in Governance and Finance Corporate Finance II Option Optional modules: Bond Markets and Investment Analysis Community Organisation, Sustainability, and Development Comparative Human Resource Management Global Supply Strategies International Entrepreneurship Investment Banking International Macroeconomics and Finance Quantitative Methods for Economics and Finance II Strategy Making Optional modules will run if at least ten students select them. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of modules to some students. As the options reflect staff research interests, they may change over time. In addition to the modules above, students are expected to undertake a compulsory element comprising Research Methods (15 credits) and Independent Study (45 credits). Delivery methods vary between modules but will include a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops, guest speakers, and case studies, allowing students the opportunity to not only learn from experts in each module but also have the time to undertake independent research and practice questions to consolidate learning. This programme is available for both a September and February start. Optional modules may be restricted for those choosing to enrol in February due to student numbers, timetabling, and staffing constraints. Please note that February admission is only available for full-time study. Professional Practice This course is available with a Professional Practice pathway. This two-year version of the degree provides the opportunity to undertake a period of professional practice at the end of the first year to gain hands-on experience through a paid placement. Students will be responsible for sourcing their own paid placements but will be supported by dedicated employability specialists. Students who are accepted onto the Professional Practice programme will attend a consultation with a Programme Leader and Placement Coordinator early in their first term to discuss timelines, processes, and requirements. The Professional Practice year is not assessed. However, students will be required to present a placement project linked to their experience. Students who successfully complete their degree with a year in Professional Practice will receive the award title MSc Accounting and Finance with Professional Practice. Those who do not will receive the MSc Accounting and Finance award, or equivalent exit award. Please note: the Professional Practice pathway is only available for a September start. Contact Hours and Independent Study Each module typically consists of two or three weekly teaching hours over a teaching term. Four modules are usually studied per term, equating to eight to 12 hours per week. Part-time students usually study two modules per term, equating to four to six hours of contact time per week. Hours of study can vary from term to term for both full and part-time students and can be spread throughout the week. Postgraduate level study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the material covered in lectures and seminars. As a general guide, for every hour spent in class, students are expected to spend at least four hours in independent study. For more detailed information please contact the Programme Leader. Contact Hours Owing to the nature of postgraduate programmes, a significant proportion of your time will be spent in independent study and research. Research students will have meetings with their academic supervisors, however, the regularity of these will vary depending on individual requirements, subject area, staff availability, and the stage of the programme. For taught programmes, weekly contact hours may vary depending on the individual module options chosen and the stage of study. Methods of Assessment The way you will be assessed on your course will vary depending on the subject and the type of postgraduate programme you select. A taught programme could include a written dissertation, exams, presentations, and projects. A research programme could include a thesis, oral examination, and presentation to a group of research academics. You may be expected to demonstrate how your research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or understanding. Please see the indivdual course pages to find out more.

With regards to text books, the University provides students who enrol with a comprehensive reading list and you will find that our extensive library holds either material or virtual versions of the core texts that you are required to read.
