					New Industry-Focussed Accounting Degree Course
Launches
A new industry-focussed degree course in accounting has been launched in a partnership between
the University Of Ulster and QA Business School.

Accredited by the University of Ulster, the three year full-time course will be available at QA
Business School’s city centre campuses in London and Birmingham from September 2012 and aims
to provide a cost-effective, career-focussed study alternative, with fees starting at just £6000 per
annum.

QA Business School, a subsidiary of training company QA - which counts blue chip organisations such
as HSBC, Microsoft and BT as clients - formed a partnership with The University of Ulster in 2011 to
bring together QA’s extensive industry experience and the university’s world-leading academics to
create commercially-focussed, competitively-priced degree-level business education courses.

Like many standard accountancy degrees, the new course offers a secure grounding in theory and
practice, but also focusses on modern commercial realities to give students a practical and industry-
focussed start to their career.

The course will cover subjects including:

•        The concepts and theories of accounting within a broad economic, legal, social and
         professional environment.

•        The basic principles of auditing, investment, finance, taxation and their implications for
         individuals, organisations, markets, societies and other disciplines.

•        Alternative recognition rules and valuation bases.

•        The recording, preparation, presentation and analysis of financial information.

•        Business and financial information technology and systems and Professional ethics.

•        Qualitative and quantitative analysis of accounting data
William Macpherson, from QA Business School said: “For too long degree courses have been
designed without sufficient influence from the real world.

“We have brought together world class academics and extensive business and industry experience
to develop an impressive new degree-level accountancy course.

“We believe that higher education should give people knowledge and skills that are relevant to
industry and in demand, and it seems that students agree with us as places on the course at both of
our campuses are filling fast.

“We look forward to welcoming students onto the new course when it begins in September.”

The entry requirements for the course are: GCSE passes at grade B in mathematics and at grade C or
above in English language, A level passes in three subjects (equivalent of 300 UCAS tariff points), or
other equivalent educational qualifications (to be approved).

QA is one of the UK’s most successful training providers working across numerous industries with
blue chip organisations like HSBC, Microsoft, BT, Fujitsu, and public sector organisations, such as The
Ministry Of Defence
