Summary

If you have a HND/DipHE qualification, this programme allows you top up your qualifications to a full degree, giving you access to more graduate career opportunities.

This one-year top up programme is designed to provide a firm understanding of accounting. You’ll leave as a ‘business ready’ graduate, a confident, independent thinker, with the skills to adapt rapidly to change.

This top-up degree is designed specifically to develop you as a 'business ready' graduate: a confident, independent thinker with a detailed knowledge of business management, and equipped with the skills to adapt rapidly to change.

Our academics have extensive experience of organisations and will support you to connect your learning to the realities of Accounting. You will be supported throughout by your Personal Tutor, who will help to guide your learning and career development. You will also have access to our extensive range of employability events. Alongside this, we provide a wide range of other opportunities to develop and learn, including a career mentoring scheme, student-led Business Society and online careers portal.

This programme is open for all students in the UK and overseas who wish to transfer to complete the final year of an undergraduate degree, as well as students who have completed study at one of Roehampton's partner institutions.

Your tutors have extensive experience across many accounting contexts, and will demonstrate how your learning connects to, and impacts on, the real world.

Business Readiness and Extended Academic Induction modules will build your future employability throughout your degree, by developing your academic, leadership and management skills. 

You will compile evidence of your developing knowledge, skills and attributes, and be able to clearly articulate your increasing ability to add value to organisations.

They will help you build your CV, prepare for interviews, and meet and learn from successful graduates working at the top of their careers.
