UCAS Clearing Accounting and Finance Courses

Students in Clifford Whitworth Library

The modules delivered on our accounting and finance courses allow you to specialise in areas ranging from economics to business and data analysis, preparing you to meet the ever-growing needs of employers seeking high-calibre candidates to fill their job roles.

You will also be given the opportunity to join ACCA Accelerate and become a student member of CIMA. A student CIMA membership means that you will gain exemptions from some of their professional exams when you graduate, helping you leap ahead in your journey to becoming a chartered finance professional.

As well as the wide range of professional opportunities Salford has to offer, you will also study in an encouraging environment where you are more than just a number, with academic and professional services teams that are on hand to support you throughout your degree.

But don’t just take our word for it. In 2019, 100% of students asked agreed that they were able to contact staff when they needed to (University of Salford analysis of unpublished NSS 2019 data).

Our full range of accounting and finance courses are listed below. 

Accounting and Finance with Professional Experience Year

One of the main advantages of studying our BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance with Professional Experience Year course is the chance to take an optional placement year, where you will gain hands-on experience while earning an income. Most students who choose to undertake a placement year see quantifiable improvements in their academic results. Plus, we encourage students to continue their association with the organisation they worked for, to help with their networking opportunities.

Ruksana’s story

University of Salford student Ruksana Akter

Ruksana, who studied BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance with Professional Experience Year, tells us how she benefitted from her experience on placement.

"I have learnt so much on placement in the space of six months. I feel that it will help me to make better career choices when I leave university, as I am already thinking about what field I would like to be part of and what additional qualifications I want to complete. I think that this experience will help me to stand out from the competition, who may not have opted to do a placement."
