Many Accountants occupy key managerial positions in business, yet few are qualified managers. This new degree was created in response to market demand for graduates with specialist Accounting knowledge, competent to manage and to lead. It is anticipated that students will effectively structure part of their degree, incorporating their own work-experience as casestudies for relevant assessments. This single honours Accounting and Management programme is structured to achieve some exemptions with the professional accounting bodies; the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales (ICAEW) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). Additionally it is accredited by the Association of Project Managers and by the Chartered Management Institute. On successful completion of the relevant modules, students will achieve certification with these organisations, enhancing employment prospects. On all of our Accounting degree programmes, knowledge, critical analysis and interpersonal skills are developed through lectures, seminars, workshops and a variety of assessment modes. These satisfy academic, professional, and commercial requirements. Guest speakers are regularly invited to address our students, with our annual ‘Accounting Futures’ event promoting student interaction with businesses and with accounting firms.
Canterbury Christ Church University welcomes applications from anyone interested in full or part-time study. Applications are considered individually and we take into account academic qualifications as well as your personal statement and references. The list below shows typical offers for a number of the most popular qualifications. Please contact our Student Recruitment and Admissions team if eligibility for qualifications are not listed below. Please note that O-Levels sat in, or after, summer 1975 must be at grade C or above. CSE grade 1 is accepted as equivalent to GCSE at grade C. Generally, offers will be made in terms of grades up to a certain number of UCAS tariff points. For example, a typical offer would be 240 UCAS tariff points including three A2 Levels, or AVCEs, at grade C or above. Some degree programmes require a specific A2 Level subject and entry requirements can differ between programmes. Please check individual subject entries for specific requirements. Where an applicant is taking a combination of qualifications this may be reflected in an offer. Grades declared following modular examinations for AS Levels at the end of Year 12 will assist us in framing conditional offers, but students taking linear assessment, who will not know their grades until Year 13, will not be discriminated against. The University does not intend to use unit grade information. The University will not normally make offers for a place on degree programmes based on AS qualifications alone (i.e. to those with no A2 Levels, or only one A2 Level qualification). We welcome evidence of achievements in respect of key skills but candidates will not normally be required to have this qualification. Consequently, those candidates who have not had the opportunity to take a recognised qualification in key skills will not be disadvantaged in terms of their application
