Hi Student room,
I to start a career in accountancy, but without going through the UNI route.
I Got a Chemistry degree (2.2).
what steps do i need to take to get in to accountancy?
Can I get into accounting with a Science Degree?
is it easier to join a small firm as a trainee, and then get then company to fund for the qualification? do small firms do that?
or is it easier taking a apprenticeship in accountancy?
Any Advice would be really helpful

You can do any degree, it is a common misconception that you have to study Economics or Mathematics to get into finance. Some of the smaller companies do take on graduates with 2.2s I believe, but if you have your heart set on the big 4, you may have to enter via their school leaver scheme, assuming you have the A-levels required.
