For me it is so manageable, the concepts and questions are never difficult. they can get frustrating with the details but to understand accounting concepts is doable in quick time. you're going to be familiarised with the different kind of financial statements and double entry bookkeeping in first year, it is monotonous which can be interpreted as boring, but imo uni for me is to understand quick, do it and then have the time to focus on other aspect of uni. and accounting will allow you to do that, because it's not one of those time-consuming courses.

lol the amount is laughable...I would say none. gcse maths is sufficient. it's mainly multiplying, division, adding, subtracting, basic algebra like find x, manipulating given formulas. nothing hardcore

well thats subjective really, people will say your music taste is awful but thats not necessarily true to you. I personally find it interesting, granted accounting course in my uni isnt exclusively accounting, we cover modules from economics to business to management

Hi m.s124!

I just (virtually) graduated with a BA Hons in Accounting and Finance.

Personally I loved the programme and just the university experience in general is so much better than school and college. Accounting and Finance is so much more than just numbers and spreadsheets. Yes there is a fair amount of it but there's so much variety in the programme than you'd expect.
Some of my modules included Islamic Banking, Business and Company Law, Information Systems, Economics, to mention a few.

It's much more than just maths, most of the maths involved is GCSE level of lower, and if there are concepts that are higher, your lecturers will teach these to you, you're not expected to just know it. In my first year we did a maths test to determine how strong are general mathematics was and for the people that needed extra support, they were offered extra quantitative methods classes to bring them up to speed.

Just like school and college, like subjects, some modules will be easier than others and others will be more interesting than others but nothing is impossible or requires you to have prior knowledge.

The best thing to do before starting the programme, or anything in life really, is research. Have a look at where the university ranks for that subject, what modules different universities offer; and whether that works for you, get in touch with the programme leaders, go to open days and talk to previous/ current students. Get a feel for it to see if the programme is right for you.

If you have any further questions just reply here or get in touch with us via our website Livechat or email.

Best of luck!
~ Mo
