Entry into third year normally requires (i) passes in all courses (240 credits) in the first two years,(ii) a pass in Economics 2, (iii) a pass in Statistical Methods for Economics and (iv) a pass in each of Accountancy 2A and Accountancy 2B and an average of 50% in both at the first attempt.
Students who spend their third year abroad at a partner university must complete and pass a full year's diet of examinable subjects (equivalent to 120 credits), all of which must be in Economics and Accounting. Students must complete and pass equivalent courses to the year 3 compulsory courses, but subject to additional requirements as described in the Study Abroad Information, available on Learn.
Students can gain a number of exemptions from the professional Accounting bodies (ICAS, ICAEW, CIMA, ACCA) but these exemptions differ according to each Accounting body. Further details are available on the Business School Student Intranet MyBiz http://www.business-school.ed.ac.uk/mybiz/.
