Accounting and Finance Student
Oliver H
United Kingdom, Undergraduate
Accountancy
Overall
The course for first year develops your proficiency to get everyone up to a set level. This includes mathematics (even if you haven't studied A level) as well as accounting basics. Accountancy is taught in a clear fashion and the teachers are good at what they do. There is also other modules like economics and general presentation/interpersonal skills. This is good for developing yourself. You then have to choose between Accounting or Finance for second year. However, either way you still have some modules that cover both Accounting and Finance so either way you go you could still go into the other field. Finance has not been too hard so far. I am interested in Corporate Finance and therefore find it interesting

Overall
Personal recommendation
To enhance the communication within english and international students, even if it means in some cases to educate some english students who seem narrow-minded.

Italy, Undergraduate
Economics
Overall
My time at UoB was brilliant, giving me ample experience and development for my future. I studied the Liberal Arts programme which can be a source of Incredible multi-disciplinary learning if you use it properly, i.e. go in already having a vague idea of how you want to finish. Amazing ties to other universities for opportunities to study abroad for a year. Vibrant city with 4 other universities, very much geared up to the student life.

ABOUT
The University was founded in 1900 by the citizens of Birmingham who wanted their own university to train and educate the people who would create and manage the burgeoning businesses and industries of the midlands. The modern University is equally distinguished in the humanities, education, social sciences and law.
