Accountants are best known for validating company accounts – auditing – but they also devise and operate financial systems, conduct investment analysis, advise on business start-ups, company takeovers and company rescue schemes, and handle individuals’ and corporations’ tax affairs.

At Kent Business School, our Accounting & Finance degrees respond to the needs of the modern accountancy profession. We offer the opportunity to spend a year on work placement, or to combine accounting with related subjects as part of a dual degree.

Our approach to teaching gives you the confidence and skills you need to follow the path that most interests you.

We have an excellent record of graduate employment with our graduates moving into a range of careers, including professional training in public practice (chartered accountancy) or in industry, commerce or the public sector, or financial services or general management.

Our programme is fully accredited by the professional accountancy bodies and provides several exemptions from professional accounting examinations. We also offer a qualifying taxation module, which is not available at many other UK universities.

Year in Industry
Professional work placements provide an enjoyable yet indispensable first-hand experience of the specific job function, organisation and industry you choose, deepening your understanding of how business really works before you enter the job market as a graduate.

With more students attending university, competition for graduate employment remains fierce, so by combining your business degree with relevant employment experience in a full time salaried placement provides you with a real competitive advantage.

Work placements take place between Stages 2 and 3 of your degree. Companies who have participated in the scheme in recent years include British Energy, BP, IBM, Sun Microsystems, KPMG, Lloyds TSB and Unilever.
