I'm currently doing my Bachelors in Accounting and am in my final year. I have serious doubts as to what I want to do after my bachelor's is done. I'm thinking of professional courses like ACCA, CPA, or ICAEW. Any idea as to which course is better? I'm also interested in Forensic Accounting, but from what I've read about it, it's best to pursue it once you have a professional certification.

I also did a Bachelors in Accounting and had the same issue of where it may lead post uni.

There are a number of graduate schemes available although if you are in your final year right now, you have left it quite late to apply.

I would suggest checking out the range of graduate schemes, Civil Service offer a good range however you are too late to apply for some of them I believe.

Otherwise the professional accreditation route is a good plan, it is worth trying to get in with a company first though so that you have the certainty that it is worth doing. Also some companies will pay for your first and sometimes second attempt at the professional papers.
heeyo, thanks i'll check them out

Imo with Fraud Investigation you'd don't really need a degree, like it's not a MUST, but it's good to have one.
As long as you can show the skills required, and with some previous experience to back that, then you'll be okay.
Like with the job that I applied for in fraud, the interview was all about the soft skills, rather than the technical stuff.
So like there isn't really a way to learn more about it, but idk ugh

Yes
Or you could apply at various law firms which deal with similar things such as fraud as most roles have similar skills needed to go into fraud investigation, because you're investigating a claim to see for any flaws, for example.

a bachelor's degree in a relevant field is enough? or any particular courses that must be done?

In terms of education yeah, but you also need experience in the relevant field, to show that you have soft skills as well.
