Accountancy is ideal if you love number crunching and money. A high level of maths, analytical and problem solving skills, with a high interest in the latest trends and laws that affect practice, is necessary for entering the world of accounting.
Accounting courses typically require a minimum of 5 GCSEs, including maths grade B, and 280 UCAS points from A-level or equivalent. Applicants must demonstrate a high level of number application, communication and ICT.
Accountants ensure organisations maintain good financial control to survive, and are therefore always in demand from a wide range of organisations, from private, public and voluntary.
