This Charity degree course aims to equip students with a knowledge of: Specialist charity taxation and unique tax privileges; and The distinctive financial accounting practice and management. Students should be highly motivated managers and will normally have a good first degree, a related professional qualification or at least three years wholly relevant experience.

Entry requirements

Students will normally have a good first degree (2:1 or above), a related professional qualification or at least three years, wholly relevant experience. If you have more than three years relevant experience, two professional references are acceptable.

Overseas students are welcome to apply to these courses, but need to be aware that they cannot be sponsored for Tier 4 Study visas due to the part-time modular delivery of the course.

In order to participate fully in the collaborative learning process all students who have not previously studied in English must sit an IELTS exam. The required IELTS level is an average of 7.0 with a minimum of 6.5 in writing. If you are not a native English speaker but have been studying in the UK for the last three years it is unlikely you will need to take the test. Please submit a copy of your most recent English language test/qualification along with your application and a decision will be made by the Admissions Panel.
