UCAS code
We have added a separate UCAS code for the 4 year variant of this degree (N40Y).

We have updated the duration text for this degree:

Original content:
3 years full-time (or 4 years with placement)

Amended content:
3 years full-time, 4 years full-time with placement year

Course overview
We have updated the final paragraph of our ‘Course overview’ tab to reflect changes to the placement year:

Original content:
You will also have the opportunity to extend your degree to four years with a placement year studying abroad or working in the UK or overseas.

Amended content:
If you choose our 4-year degree you will work in the UK or overseas. You may also apply for a study placement at one of our partner institutions. Previous work placements have been carried out at companies such as L’Oreal, Microsoft, EY, Goldman Sachs, and GlaxoSmithKline.

Course structure
We have added a new paragraph to the page about the Placement Year offering:

New content:
Are you considering studying BSc Accounting and Finance with Placement Year?

If you choose to study BSc Accounting and Finance with Placement Year, your third year will be when you complete your work placement and then you will study the modules listed within Year Three within your final year (Year Four) when you return to WBS.

Study abroad
We have revised the study abroad paragraph in the ‘Course overview’ tab to reflect the changes to the Placement Year:

Original content:
The following WBS degree enables you to spend time studying abroad:

- International Management

Study abroad is not a requirement of Accounting and Finance, nor is it guaranteed. However if there are places available once allocations have been made to the students on the above course, Accounting and Finance students may be considered.

Amended content:
Study abroad is guaranteed for students on BSc International Management who meet the Year One requirements. As part of our BSc Accounting and Finance with Placement Year students can apply for a study placement (rather than working). Studying abroad as part of this course is undertaken in English and opportunities are available with a wide range of partners in countries such as Canada, Singapore, France, and Japan.

Core modules
We have revised our introduction to the core modules to reflect the Placement Year option on the ‘Modules’ tab:

Original content:
The structure for this course depends on which modules you take throughout the three years. You have the option to focus your studies around accounting, finance or a mixture of both.

Amended content:
The layout below represents the modules for studying BSc Accounting and Finance, if you chose to study BSc Accounting and Finance with Placement Year, the third year modules listed below will become your fourth year modules as you will complete your work placement within your third year.
