THE FULL STORY

Whatever sector you dream of working in, there is always a need for savvy accountants and financially-minded managers. The Accounting and Finance BA (Hons) degree from UA92 is designed to help you take flight into a whole range of careers – from government to big business, to charity, to entertainment.


Accounting is concerned with the provision of financial information for a diverse variety of purposes:

  • Planning.
  • Decision-making.
  • Performance measurement and reporting.

Finance is concerned with:

  • Financial decision-making.
  • Asset pricing.
  • Risk management.
  • Financial market organisation and behaviour.

Here are some examples of the areas we will cover in both subjects:

  • Over three years, you’ll gain a solid understanding of the disciplines and practice of accounting and finance, alongside the theoretical and practical skills you’ll need to really shine in the workplace. Then, invaluably, you’ll have opportunity to prove your knowledge, taking part in placements where you can apply your theoretical knowledge to the workplace.
  • Work-based placements are a key aspect of your UA92 degree. This is your chance to gain relevant experience and see how what you learn in the classroom applies in the workplace. It’s your opportunity to develop your skills and competencies – and build a CV that will wow prospective employers.
  • The course is modular, and your studies will combine lectures, seminars, workshops and practical exercises. By studying a wide range of topics in accounting and finance, alongside work placements, you will discover your own strengths and enthusiasms. This combination of practical and theoretical-based study will help you build an amazing competencies portfolio that will prove to future employers your well-rounded and deep understanding.
  • Alongside a syllabus focused on the practice and theory of financial management as a career, our specially developed Target Talent Curriculum will help you develop your wider professional workplace skills. From encouraging you to present like a pro through to helping you apply entrepreneurial principles in all you do, we hope you’ll outshine the graduate job market competition and offer your employer the skills they’re looking for.

FEES AND FINANCE

University is a big investment and it’s important to consider how you’ll manage your finances.

We’ve answered some of the questions you might have, to prepare you with all the information before taking the next step.

What do I need to pay for? 
If you decide to study away from home, your three biggest outgoings will be tuition fees, accommodation and living costs. 


How much are tuition fees? 

The cost for UK undergraduate students at UA92 for September 2019 entry is £9,000 per academic year. 

Most students choose to take out a student loan to cover this, paid directly to the institution.


How do I apply for a student loan? 
You can apply online from Student Finance England, www.gov.uk/student-finance. Applying is not dependent on an offer, so you can get a headstart on the process.


When do I pay this back? 
Not straight away. You won’t actually start paying the loan back until you’re working and earning over £21,000 - how much you pay depends on your salary. 


Is there a loan for accommodation and living costs? 
Yes – eligible UK students can apply for a Maintenance Loan, again through Student Finance England, up to £8,430 a year to help with the costs of living. Repayment of this works in the same way as your tuition fees – they actually combine together into one sum. 


I’m an international student, how much are my fees? 
Fees for international students will be available soon on our website. You will be expected to pay a minimum of 50 percent, upfront before your course begins. 


Can I get advice or support during my time at UA92? 
Absolutely, we will have a Support Team on campus to help you with budgeting and financial advice to ensure you manage your money whilst studying with us. In addition, and as part of our Target Talent Curriculum, you’ll learn about financial planning to manage your finances in study and throughout your working life. 


Is there any other financial help available? 
There are other government grants - which you don’t have to pay back - to cover living costs for students with dependents, though these depend on your household income. There is also extra support available for students with a disability. All information can be found at www.gov.uk/student-finance


University is a big investment and it’s important to consider how you’ll manage your finances.
