Ulster University - Belfast

Accounting - Advanced

This popular vocational programme is designed to meet the needs of accounting graduates who wish to pursue a career as a chartered accountant. It is an academically challenging programme which attracts high-calibre accounting graduates. It allows students to combine a postgraduate masters qualification with study for professional examinations.

The programme is accredited by Chartered Accountants Ireland (CAI) and is currently the only such recognised programme in Northern Ireland which offers accounting graduates the opportunity to gain both a Masters degree and full CAP2 exemptions from CAI.

The goal of this programme is to produce high-calibre graduates who will progress quickly through their professional training and advance to senior management positions either within professional practice or industry. As a result of the considerable exemptions from CAI examinations and sponsorship from employers, employment prospects are excellent.
