A level Accounting

This popular course provides the perfect theoretical background for someone planning a career in Accountancy but it’s also an invaluable course if you’re planning to study other business-related subjects.

Course Modules

  • Module One: Financial Accounting
  • Module Two: Accounting for Analysis and Decision-Making
  • Module Three: Further Aspects of Financial Accounting
  • Module Four: Further Aspects of Accounting for Analysis and Decision-Making

Each lesson begins with a set of clearly stated objectives and an explanation of its place in the overall programme of study.

Effective learning is encouraged through frequent activities and self-assessment questions.

The course includes fourteen Tutor-marked Assignments – Two of which are practice examination papers.
