Employability and Careers

The Accounting courses offer a firm base for either further academic study or taking the final examinations of the main professional accountancy bodies. 

Our Accounting courses attract students of the very highest calibre, and are recognised by the accounting profession, industry and the public sector. As a result, Accounting graduates from Queen’s University Belfast are much sought after throughout Britain, Ireland and further afield.

Graduates who take a degree in Accounting with another subject have additional opportunities relevant to that subject. 

When you leave university, you may decide not to become a professional accountant, however, many of the skills that you will acquire during your Accounting studies will be of great value in different career and life situations. 

Core transferable skills include the ability to learn independently, problem-solve, understand financial information and work productively as part of a team.
