Bachelor Of Science (Hons) in Applied Accounting by Oxford Brookes University (OBU)

ACCA and Oxford Brookes University (OBU) have worked together to develop a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Applied Accounting, which is available exclusively to ACCA students who wish to obtain a degree while studying towards the ACCA Qualification.
There are numerous benefits to completing the degree, not least is the fact that a degree and a professional accounting qualification are a powerful combination of qualifications to have, putting students in demand with employers and increasing their career prospects.

Course Structure

The Research and Analysis Project (RAP) is the final component of the BSc degree and consists of two separate documents; a 7,500 word Research Report (RR) and a 2,000 word Skills and Learning Statement (SLS). Students are also required to give a presentation on the project to their project mentor.

For RR, students are required to conduct an investigation and write a report which addresses one of the topics listed by OBU.

SLS is an evaluation of students’ experiences of doing the RR by demonstrating that they have developed the key ‘graduate’ skills of self-reflection and communication.
