Professional accreditation and exemptions

Exemptions from professional examinations

Several of the national professional bodies give exemptions from their examinations if certain courses and programmes have been successfully taken by this School's students. Students must check with the professional body concerned to ensure that the courses they have taken within their programme will be considered as exemptions. You are strongly advised to retain all of your full course descriptions for each year of your programme in case you need to use them later for exemption purposes, as additional copies will incur a charge by MBS.

Accountancy bodies

Please refer to Professional accounting accreditation for information regarding Accreditation and Professional Bodies. Some of these exemptions would also be applicable for BA Econ Accounting and Finance specialism students.
