    Hi Jellybeansnkmk,

    If your accounting and finance course is accredited, it means that it is recognised by a particular professional accountancy body, and this will ultimately mean that you will get some exemptions of your professional accountancy exams. This is particularly relevant if after your degree you want to become a qualified accountant. The more exemptions that you get from your degree, the less exams you will have to do and the quicker you will become a fully qualified accountant!

    The course at the University of Kent is accredited, and you can find details of the exam exemption for the different professional accountancy bodies in the UK on our website: http://www.kent.ac.uk/kbs/undergradu...g-finance.html

    All Universities should have details of the course accreditation and exam exemptions on their websites, and so I would encourage you to look at the other universities' websites. If you cannot find this information, e-mail them and they should give you all the information you need!

    I hope this helps, but if you need any further info, please let me know!

    I don't go to Kent but just thought I'd say that's a fantastic idea to have the exemptions available listed on your University website; I don't think I've seen this before, certainly not for mine, and it would have been great to have known it before.

    I think it's really helpful to applicants especially when they are much more focused now on their future career/employability prospects
