University College London (UCL) ranks 8th in the QS World University Rankings 2022 & 2023.

This preparatory course aims to provide tuition support to students for studying the MSc in Professional Accountancy, University of London (UCL).

120 credits recongnised and accredited as prior learning, students only need to study two elective modules (15 credits each) and one project module (30 credits).

This is a CEF (Continuing Education Fund) reimbursable programme for which the maximum amount per student is up to HK$25,000.

The programme aims to provide participants with a theoretical and practical understanding of the evolving nature and applications of finance and accounting models. The evolutions stem from changes in the economic, political, regulatory and technological environment. In doing so, students could look at the established history, the current situation, and explore implications for the future.
 
The programme provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to assess the impact of such changes on organisations and a range of relevant stakeholders. It aims to explore current issues in financial reporting, financial management and corporate finance disciplines and to provide opportunities for students to develop their skills in critical analysis and evaluation of alternative solutions.
