Accounting and Finance

If you are an Accounting and Finance major you cannot spend Year 2 abroad for professional accreditation reasons. You can, however, spend the Michaelmas Term of Year 3 at one of the universities listed below. A semester abroad is a very popular option with Accounting and Finance students and places are normally allocated on the basis of academic performance in Year 2 and an interview. Between 2 and 5 places are normally available. You should inform the Departmental Study Abroad Adviser of your interest in study abroad during the Michaelmas term of your second year.

When selecting your preferred destinations, it is worth checking the prerequisites needed for the courses you would like to take. Business courses are generally more quantitative than in the UK, and many require understanding of mathematics at a higher level than GCSE. Calculus is a common prerequisite. You may have to take and pass the Study Abroad Mathematics module offered by the Management School.
