Entry into Year 3 normally requires (i) passes in all courses (240 credits) in Years 1 and 2; (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 a minimum mark of 50% in one of these two courses.
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, CIPFA, AIA) but these exemptions differ according to each Accounting body. Further details are available on the Business School UG tab on Learn.
