    Description

    Why Dundee

    At Dundee, we aim to help you develop the skills and techniques that employers consider vital for entry into a variety of rewarding careers in accounting.

    The BAcc at Dundee is fully accredited and recognised for exemption purposes by all the leading accountancy bodies in the UK and Ireland.

    Why study Accountancy at Dundee?

    The BAcc focuses on the reporting practices in the UK and Ireland. It allows you to have a better understanding of accounting practices, regulations and standards in an increasingly globalised accounting and reporting environment. Throughout your BAcc studies, we want you to understand the power and limitations of accountancy and financial techniques and how they can help society to function.

    Our staff are committed to providing a stimulating, supportive and friendly environment for our students. This commitment was recognised by the latest National Student Survey (2011) in which 94% of accountancy students said they thought staff were good at explaining things.

    What's so good about Accountancy BAcc at Dundee?

    The Accountancy BAcc can be studied over three years as a non-honours degree, or can be taken as an Honours degree over four years. You have until the start of the third year to decide which type of degree is best for you. The 'Big Four' accounting firms usually require their employees to have an Honours degree that is classified at 2:1 or above, and therefore most of our students take the Honours option, choosing a variety of optional modules which allow particular specialisms to be followed. Advanced Entry to Level 2 of the Honours degree is also available to those with suitable grades in required subjects.

    Guest lectures from industry practitioners

    Guest lectures are often given by experienced accounting and finance practitioners and outside visits are also organised to help you appreciate the 'real world' application of the discipline. Depending on your module choices you might visit financial institutions in Edinburgh and London. Accountancy BAcc students may also spend part of their degree in Australia, Canada or the USA.

    The university has an amazing campus right in the middle of the city. The people around are the friendliest you'll probably ever meet.

    Employability

    Careers

    The Accountancy BAcc can enhance your employability by developing your:

    · numeracy and analytical abilities

    · computing expertise and your interpersonal and communication skills

    Our accountancy degrees are therefore designed to prepare you for either a career as an accountant or for the wide variety of other careers that benefit from a business education. The scope for applying accounting skills is almost unlimited - they are needed in organisations of all types and sizes - at home and abroad.

    Professional relevance and accreditation

    Your career is important to us and the professional relevance and accreditation of the Accountancy BAcc degree is kept under careful review. We liaise with employers and the University Careers Service to ensure that the Accountancy BAcc continues to meet the needs of the graduate employment market. Our School also helps to contribute to the University of Dundee's outstanding record in graduate employment. About two thirds of our graduates go on to professional accountancy training while the rest embark on the huge range of other careers that are open to accountancy graduates such as banking, teaching or management.

    The School has strong links with local employers and the 'Big Four' accounting firms who regularly participate in School career events each Wednesday afternoon.

    What are our graduates doing?

    Our graduates (alumni) are to be found working all over the world in a variety of interesting and challenging jobs.

    In the accounting profession many work with large international accounting firms (the 'Big Four'), or with smaller firms in Scotland and throughout the UK. Many work for other commercial organisations including financial institutions and manufacturing companies, and in the public sector - some as accountants and some in other managerial or specialist positions; some are running their own businesses.

    Course Content

    Degree without Honours

    If you choose to study a degree without honours, you study for three years, levels 1-3 below.

    Level 1

    All students studying for an Accountancy BAcc degree take a common set of modules at Level:

    • Introductory Financial Accounting, where the basic concepts of accounting practices, including book-keeping and the production of external financial reports are introduced;
    • Introductory Management Accounting, where students are introduced to the foundations of costing and accounting for planning and control;
    • Introductory Financial Management, where foundation material on corporate financing and relevant concepts from economic theory are presented;
    • Statistics, where statistical methods such as probability theory and regression analysis are presented, as well as other quantitative techniques relevant to modern business activity;
    • International Business Environment, which introduces students to the relationship between firms and their immediate environment as well as discussing aspects of managerial theory and material relating to personal financial planning;
    • Information Systems, which provides hands-on experience of the modern software applications relevant to accounting and business as well as introducing students to some of the theoretical concepts relevant to the processing of information in large organisations

    Level 2

    Level 2 of the Accountancy BAcc also consists of six modules: these are designed to build on and develop the theoretical and practical material covered at Level 1:

    • Intermediate Financial Accounting, which builds on Level 1 material by introducing students to UK regulatory requirements and some key contemporary accounting issues such as accounting for goodwill;
    • Intermediate Management Accounting, which develops the Level 1 material by introducing higher level concepts in costing and managerial reporting in general;
    • Intermediate Financial Management, which builds on Level 1 material by introducing students to techniques used in practice to appraise financial and capital investments as well as discussing working capital management and long-term fund raising;
    • Financial Decision Analysis, which introduces students to the modern techniques used in financial decision analysis, including linear programming, queuing and inventory modelling;
    • Management and Information Systems, which develops some of the material from Level 1 by discussing contemporary management theory and case studies as well as developing the information technology skills and system theory introduced in Level 1;
    • Business Law, which focuses on the main legal principles that affect firms' commercial activities by covering aspects of modern contract and company law as well as relevant aspects of delict, agency and commercial law

    Levels 3 and 4

    Performance in the first two Levels helps determine whether students are offered the chance to study for the Honours version of the degree (awarded after four years) or the non-Honours version (awarded after three years).

    Students taking the non-Honours version of the degree take six modules at Level 3, most of which build directly on those taken at earlier Levels.

    Honours students take twelve modules over Levels 3 and 4.

    Level 3

    • Advanced Financial Accounting I
    • Advanced Management Accounting
    • Advanced Financial Management
    • Auditing
    • Financial Reporting Theory
    • Taxation

    Level 4

    Five options from:

    • Case Studies in Business Policy
    • Financial Assurance And International Reporting
    • Social & Environmental Accounting & Reporting
    • Financial Management Theory
    • Financial Statement Analysis
    • Advanced Management & Information System

    Depending on your chosen specialism, one of the following:

    • Financial Accounting and International Reporting
    • Financial Management Theory
    • Advanced Management and Information Systems
    • Practical French or German or Spanish
    How you will be assessedAssessment is by a mixture of:
    • coursework (for example an essay),
    • computer labs,
    • projects based on group assignments
    • exams.

    The weightings allocated to assessed coursework and the final examination vary from module to module. Typically 80% is allocated to the final exam but this is less in some modules and higher in others. In the first two years of the Accountancy BAcc, three subjects are delivered per semester, each having approximately 5 hours of classes. Consequently, there is approximately 15 hours of contact time from Monday to Friday of each week. We expect students to undertake an additional 20 hours of individual study per week to prepare for classes and revise material covered in lectures or tutorials.

    Please visit the School of Business website for more information on life as a student.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
