Your lecturers are more than just enthusiastic academics – they carry out research and regularly engage with the wider world of business too. They’ll provide insight into the concepts that underpin current accountancy practice and financial management. Everything you learn will help you develop your commercial awareness and understand how organisations operate.

You’ll graduate a step closer to qualifying as an accountant. And with extra ECDL and Sage certificates, you’ll stand out to top employers across different sectors too. Edge Hill graduates have become chartered accountants, with others working in finance management and tax affairs.
