How you learn is almost as important as what you learn, and it is our job to ensure we give you all the information you need in as interesting and varied a way as possible.

We hope you'll leave us not only with all you need to start a career, but as someone who doesn’t see a job as the end of their studies so much as the start of Continuous Professional Development and Lifelong Learning. This degree provides a fantastic basis for all professional qualifications, including those offered by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA); the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA); the Institute of Chartered Accountants (ICAEW); and the Institute of Credit Management (ICM).
The great thing about a degree in accounting and finance is it’s such a flexible qualification. Lots of our students choose to stay with us, or move to another institution to undertake further study on a master’s degree. Others choose to go down the professional route and obtain a professional qualification with the ACCA, CIMA or the ICAEW. Some decide they've had enough of exams altogether and choose to use their qualification to go straight into the industry or the world of finance.
Whatever you decide you'll find an accounting degree from the University of West London will open doors for you.
What our students say
(Chief Accountant, Penap Consultants)
University of West London gave me the opportunity to study in Cyprus and obtain a degree in Accounting and Finance from a world recognised university. During the course I was able to gain knowledge in the field of business that I intend to pursue through my professional career. The practical and theoretical views of my professors were very helpful for me since I gained a rounded view of several business matters. Thank you UWL!!!
