Accredited by professional accounting bodies
The University of Wolverhampton partners with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) in their Advantage programme, which provides final-year students an accelerated path to ACCA membership. This gives all accounting and finance students the chance to benefit from enhanced career prospects, discounted fees, and access to the global ACCA community, offering practical assistance with your studies and future career.

This provides enhanced employment opportunities in the financial sector, providing a fast route towards gaining a professional accountancy qualification.
