Teaching Methods

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. So there will be lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshops, where you will listen, learn, discuss and gain hands-on experience of how business and finance work. At the University of West London, we aim to combine traditional academic teaching with up-to-date training in the skills needed to be successful in the modern world.

Exit Skills

Our aim is to produce graduates with all the skills and abilities needed to flourish in the world of accounting and finance.

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).

Career Progression
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.
