Naturalist

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalist's interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Summary... header image

Accounting is the process of taking financial data, analysing it, and presenting it in reports that can be easily interpreted by others. This is crucial for businesses, where managers don’t always have training in finance, but need this information to make informed decisions.

Accounting is for logical thinkers. The course offers an in-depth knowledge of the theoretical and practical aspects of accounting and finance, as well as an understanding of the business, legal, taxation and IT context of this work.

The degree is structured around three main areas: Accounting, Finance and Buisness. Students may also choose to study a Eurpoean language (French, German or Spanish) for all or part of their course.

Graduates are granted significant exemptions from examinations of professional accountancy bodies.
