Why Study Accounting?
Studying Accounting helps students to understand the responsibilities of the accountant and the impacts of their recommendations on the business and its stakeholders in a modern economy. A-Level Accounting will help you develop a range of numerous transferable skills. You will build knowledge and understanding of key financial and accounting concepts, principles, and techniques that you can apply to real-life scenarios. This will develop your ability to solve problems logically, analyse data methodically, make reasoned financial and non-financial choices and communicate these to stakeholders effectively.
Where can Accounting take me next?
The majority of the students who study A-Level Accounting go on to study an accounting or business-related degree at university. If you decide not to go to university you could go on to an apprenticeship programme in accounting or gain employment in marketing, finance, human resources, or administration. Alternatively, you could go straight into professional qualifications such as ACCA or CIMA.
