Hi, I need help in choosing between BSc Economics with Accounting in Brunel and BSc Accounting and Finance in Queen Mary.

Brunel is giving me what I wanted, able to study Economics while still being accredited by ACCA and they offer year in industry too which I think is very important and useful after graduate. However, they dont seem to be a reputable university and I have read bad reviews about their teaching facilities etc.

Queen Mary, on the other hand, is part of a Russel Group and seem to be quite reputable. However, does not offer year in industry, only summer internships which I’m not sure if it will be as useful as the whole year in industry.

Any opinions are open, thank youuu!

Is the QMUL course not accredited? I.e. Check whether you'd receive the ACCA/ACA exemptions from there

If you're certain on a career in accountancy/audit/tax I'd suggest going to the uni which gives you the most ACCA/ACA exemptions as it will be tough later on when you might have to balance work and study for many exams as you study to become qualified

Hi, thanks for your reply. The Economics with Finance in Queen Mary is not accredited by ACCA, but their Accounting and Finance is accredited by ACCA and other professional bodies, which I wouldnt mind taking as I can take optional modules related to economics. But the only thing that puts me off is that they dont offer year in industry.

I'd go for QMUL then. The year in industry isn't guaranteed anyway, you'll have to apply for placements yourself. Many people at my uni didn't get the placements they wanted and opted for summer internships (which are more available) instead. But if you're really unsure about your career path, I'd say do the year in industry to get a proper feel of the industry and working life
