Program Overview

What Glasgow Caledonian University says about their program:
"Accountants play an important role in business, providing key information that underpins the work of decision makers within organisations.


Accredited by the main UK professional accountancy bodies (ICAS, ICAEW, ACCA, CIMA and CIPFA), we focus on practical content and your future employability. Along with all aspects of accountancy, you'll study topics such as economics, law and management.


Professional accountants prepare financial statements and record business transactions; they also use information systems to track financial performance, participate in mergers and acquisitions and quality management.


Our programme will encourage you to develop a broad, comparative understanding of the practices of accounting and develop the ability to evaluate theories and evidence concerning the effects of accounting on organisations and society. You will benefit from using practical accounting packages, our small class sizes and excellent access to staff, as well as a series of guest speakers to enhance your learning.


Your career
A high number of our graduates are employed by major accountancy firms, public sector organisations and blue chip organisations, sometimes overseas, such as Grant Thornton, KPMG, Baker Tilly, Ernst and Young, Arnold Clark and Audit Scotland. Others secure training contracts and most undertake further professional study. Our graduates are exempt from a number of professional examinations.
