Mathematics and Accounting and Financial Management course overview

This course is evenly divided between the two main subject areas. It draws upon the expertise of both the Department of Mathematical Sciences and the University’s School of Business and Economics.

This course is designed for those who wish to gain knowledge of corporate finance, accounting and financial management as well as the powerful mathematical tools used in the financial and business sector. The problem-solving skills which are strongly developed in the mathematics section and the accounting skills that will also be acquired make graduates highly attractive to a wide range of employers. Accreditation has been obtained for this course from several of the professional institutes in accountancy.

Professional recognition

Accreditation has been obtained for the Mathematics and Accounting and Financial Management course from several of the professional institutes in accountancy. Successful completion of this course permits exemption from some parts of the professional examinations for graduates entering the accountancy profession.

Placement year fees for 2020/21 are still to be confirmed. As an indication, for 2017/18 the current placement fees are set at 20% of the yearly full-time fee for UK/EU students and £3,000 for international students.

Graduate destinations

Recent graduate destinations include: Rolls-Royce, HSBC, Deloitte, Siemens, Toyota Financial Services, Victor Chandler International, Mattel UK Ltd, Ministry of Justice, Honda, BskyB.

Industrial placements

All our courses are available as either full-time or sandwich courses, with the sandwich course including an extra year spent on professional training in an industrial, commercial or research establishment. The academic content of a full-time and a sandwich course is identical.

Satisfactory completion of the professional training in the sandwich course leads to the award of the Diploma in Professional Studies (DPS).

A variety of industrial, commercial and research companies have received our students in recent years and good relations have been established between these companies and the Mathematical Sciences Department.

Examples include Advantica, Ernst & Young, IBM, Aston Martin Lagonda, ICI, Hitachi and GSK. We are able to assist you to obtain suitable placements but the final responsibility rests with you.

Study abroad

If you choose one of our sandwich courses, an alternative to professional training is a year spent studying at a university in another country through a student exchange scheme, leading to the award of the Diploma in International Studies (DIntS).

We currently have exchange agreements with universities in: France, Germany, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, Lithuania, Australia, Canada.
