    Graduate destinations

    This is a new degree programme so we do not have any graduate destination information yet from our London campus degrees.

    However, you can see what our recent Newcastle campus graduates went on to do and view graduate destinations statistics. These statistics are based on what graduates were doing on a specific date, approximately six months after graduation. The most recent data available is for graduates who completed their course in 2013/14.

    The destination data is available in varying levels, beginning with the University and moving through Faculty and School down to individual course reports. This final level may give you some useful ideas about possible options after your course or a course you are considering.

    Career Opportunities

    Newcastle University enjoys a good reputation for producing highly employable graduates. Many of our graduates go on to train as chartered accountants. However, this degree can also lead to a wide choice of other career options, such as finance or general management. A high proportion of the CEOs of FTSE 100 companies are accountants by training.

    Accounting and Finance careers

    The combination of expert knowledge and personal and professional skills you learn on this degree provides you with a good foundation for the future.

    You will learn technical skills and gain knowledge related to:

    • accounting
    • finance
    • economics

    Our degree also helps you develop the key skills employers are looking for, such as:

    A variety of careers in business and industry are open to you, and you will be well placed if applying to graduate training schemes.

    UCAS buzzword

    You will need a UCAS buzzword when you register on the UCAS Apply System. Ask your teacher or advisor from your school or college for the buzzword. This makes it clear which school or college you are applying from. All UK schools and colleges and a small number of EU and international establishments are registered with UCAS.

    If you are applying independently, or from a school or college which is not registered to manage UCAS applications, then you will still need to use the UCAS ‘Apply system’ to make an application, but you won’t need a buzzword.
