AS & A2 Level Accounting

The Subject

This course does not merely provide the student with technical accountancy skills, invaluable as they are. He or she will also learn to analyse the social and wider economic consequences of accounting, gaining an understanding of a crucial aspect of modern business.  

Why study Accounting?

Accounting is the study of the procedures used by organisations to record their financial transactions. A subject rooted in the business world, it combines well with A levels in Business Studies, Economics, Politics or Law. It appeals to people with logical minds, good computational skills and an eye for detail. A/AS level in Accounting could form a useful basis for a degree in Business Studies, Banking and Finance or any other numerate discipline. The course covers all the different types of accounting, the methods used to verify information and the preparation of final accounts and balance sheets. It also analyses the ways in which managers plan ahead and control an organisation’s financial activities through applications of costing and budgeting, aided by information technology. Theory is applied by means of practical exercises and includes case studies and report-writing.   

The Course

The AS course (first year) consists of two modules:

  •  Introduction to Financial Accounting;
  •  Financial and Management Accounting.

 The A2 (second-year) modules are:

  •  Further Aspects of Financial Accounting;
  •  Further Aspects of Management Accounting.
