Additional course entry requirement
Grade 6 in GCSE mathematics
 
Why accounting?
 
Studying A level accounting will help you develop knowledge and understanding of the purposes of accounting and apply this to a variety of business problems. You’ll learn about the collection and collation of financial data and how to present these in a form that allows an organisation to survive and thrive.
 
You’ll develop the ability to acquire a range of important and transferable skills, such as dealing with data, identifying and solving problems, planning work and taking into account the demands of the task and the time available to complete it. You’ll then learn to work on more complex case-study material that requires making judgements, solving problems and justifying recommendations.
 
Many of our students go on to study finance or related degree courses at Russell Group universities and Oxbridge.
