Accounting and Finance | Foundation / Pathway program | Business | On Campus | 2 years | City College Plymouth | United Kingdom
Knowledge of accounting and finance is an essential and useful business skill, both for those wishing to merely understand the function, and those wishing to progress to professional status. On this Foundation Degree you will have the opportunity to learn how to prepare and analyse financial information, in order to make effective business decisions in areas such as performance evaluation, capital expenditure and raising finance. You will also consider these issues and how they sit within the workings of the stock market and the legal constraints of the professional accounting system. Students on this course will have the benefit of the College's close working links with the progression programme (the BA Hons on Accounting and Finance) at Plymouth University. Students who study the Foundation Degree often acquire a higher average mark on completion of their full degree than those who chose the traditional degree route.
