    This programme is designed to meet the needs of students who have some knowledge of accounting and finance and who wish to extend their knowledge to an advanced level. Students who have studied very little accounting or finance and have little relevant work experience are likely to find the programme very challenging.

    The programme consists of a core covering the main areas of accounting and corporate finance, and a research methods course that supports the dissertation. Options allow students to study particular aspects of accounting or taxation in more depth.

    Tthere is a pathway within the programme that allows students to concentrate on research-oriented training and more advanced aspects of accounting and finance.

    How will you learn?

    Your understanding of the subjects covered and your ability to use the knowledge and skills gained will be enhanced through a variety of methods and strategies. Some of the key learning approaches that you will experience as a student in the School will include:

    * Group work

    Group work is recognised as vital in your development when looking forward to, or continuing in, a management role. You will be supported in learning how to form and maintain group cohesiveness to achieve clearly defined outcomes, such as a business report, a group presentation or a combination of both.

    * Case-studies

    You will be presented with many different business case-studies that reflect the reality of decision-making and problem-solving activities in today's business environment. The case studies are selected to reflect the specific needs of your programme or unit of study.

    * Learning alongside other students

    Throughout your time with us you will be working alongside fellow students from a wide range of cultural and geographical backgrounds. This is a powerful resource and we are particularly keen to encourage you to set up learning networks with other students that may extend beyond the time of your study at Southampton.

    To help with this style of networking you will be expected to learn to communicate with each other as well as your teachers in a variety of contexts. For example, during a large group lecture you may be given the opportunity to discuss a specific problem or complete a task in small groups, often with people who are sitting alongside you. The possible answers would be shared by the large group as guided by your teacher.

    The example noted above indicates that you are expected to be an 'active' learner through taking part in small group discussions and offering your views on many occasions.

    Core modules: Corporate finance; Equity markets; Financial accounting 1 and 2; Foundations of research in accounting and finance; Management accounting 1 and 2

    Optional modules: Accounting, organisations and society; Financial risk management*; International accounting and taxation; International financial policy*; Market-based accounting

    Plus: Dissertation

    * Options only available to students who are part-qualified/qualified accountants (ACCA/CIMA)

    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.

Equivalent overseas/ professional qualification in an appropriate subject also welcomed.Applicants whose first language is not English and do not have a degree from a UK university will be required to provide evidence of competency in English by reaching an appropriate standard in an approved text such as IELTS, TOEFL and the Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (grades A-C) or the Certificate in Advance English (grades A or B). Test results should be less than two years old at the time of expected registration at the University of Southampton and must be verified before admission. * IELTS - Overall score 6.5 or above and all sections scores 6 or above. * TOEFL (paper based test) - Overall score 580 or above and all sections scores 55 or above. * TOEFL iBT (Internet-based test) - Overall score 92 or above and all section scores 21 or above.You are encouraged to enclose all the following documents when making your original application. * University of Southampton application form * Academic transcript of courses and marks * Bachelor's/master's degree certificates * 2 references on headed paper * Ethnic origin form * CV or Resume * Statement of purpose (reason for choosing the study programme) * English test result * GMAT or professional qualification certificates (if appropriate) English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6 CAE score: (read more) Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) is part of the Cambridge English suite and is targeted at a high level (IETLS 6.5-8.0).
