Accounting and finance covers economics, statistics, taxation, assurance and law. If that’s where your interests lie, accountancy could be for you.

With an accounting and finance degree you have a choice of career paths. You can work within an organisation as their dedicated accountant, managing their budgets and financial forecasting.

You can also become a chartered accountant and work in more of a consultancy role, which involves tasks like auditing a company’s accounts to make sure they’re following the law.
