Program Description

The BSc Accounting and Finance with a Foundation Year degree at Swansea is a flexible degree with the chance to study abroad for a year, or work in industry for a year. This can give you a real advantage and broaden your horizons when it comes to seeking employment.

The Foundation Year is an excellent pathway to gaining the required knowledge and skills in both accounting and finance, before joining Year 1 students of the BSc Accounting degree within the School of Management. The four year course is designed for students with an interest in both accounting and finance- including management accounting, financial accounting, and corporate finance.

Fees for full time Undergraduate EU/International students will increase by 3% for each subsequent year of study.
