The Accounting Department at QUB is replacing BSc Accounting with a new programme, MAcc Advanced Accounting with Placement.


The MAcc is an integrated undergraduate programme (combining undergraduate and Masters-level study in one four-year course). It is unique in the UK and Ireland in offering:

  • a final Masters-level qualification (Master of Accounting), with students paying undergraduate fees in each of the four years;
  • exemption from Chartered Accountants Ireland CAP1 and CAP2* exams and maximum permitted exemptions from other professional bodies;
  • a paid work-based placement during Semester Two of Year Four, together with a work-related research project;
  • an alternative exit point after three years, with students awarded BSc Accounting.


* CAP1 approval obtained and CAP2 being processed


The programme will be open for applications in September 2023, with the first Year One cohort commencing in September 2024.
