    Description

    Recent corporate scandals across the world have drawn attention to the importance of accountancy and finance. Degree programmes designed to meet the demands of the 21st Century, but which still teach the underlying skills, make it an exciting time to be studying accounting and finance at Buckingham.

    The flagship Accounting and Financial Management programme provides an academically rigorous study of the principal accounting and finance disciplines. It also has a strong vocational orientation, and with the combination of a fast-track 2-year programme and the number of exemptions attained makes Buckingham Business School a very attractive option to the Accounting and Finance student.

    Course Content

    Teaching is carried out through a combination of formal lectures supported by tutorials and seminars. A key feature of the Buckingham teaching method is the use of small tutorial groups which provide the most effective means of ensuring that the students benefit from the academic expertise at their disposal. It is also the philosophy of the Business School to be available to students outside the scheduled tutorial times and to encourage good working relationships between staff and students.

    At the beginning of each term, we provide our students with module outlines and reading lists for each module. We also provide a tutorial question pack, which the students work through week by week. Each week corresponds with the subject given in the lectures and at each tutorial the students have the opportunity to discuss their answers to the tutorial questions. Solutions to the numerical tutorial questions are handed out each week so, by the end of the term, the students have a very useful pack of material to help with their revision. Lecturers are available throughout the term to help students with their revision for the examinations. An increasing proportion of course material is available on the Universitys own Virtual Learning Environment.


    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.
