The Accounting Technology Level 6 (Hons) Degree Top Up is an advanced programme designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of accounting principles, financial analysis, and technology applications in the accounting profession. This degree course focuses on equipping students with the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in the evolving field of accounting and finance.

The top up degree will focus on developing knowledge of the field (content) whilst giving learners the opportunity to apply their learning in practical contexts (experience) whilst enhancing their learning through problem solving approaches (challenging and authentic tasks). The learning approaches will take into account the diverse backgrounds of learners at level 6, whilst helping them develop into independent learners and critical divergent thinkers ready for employment or postgraduate study (inclusive environment activities linked to student experience).

The BSc (Hons) Accounting Technology is viewed as a natural progression route for students completing the Level 5 Diploma in Accounting within Southern Regional College, South West College or Belfast Met. This is an all-Ireland qualification and will also be delivered in the Republic of Ireland.

The programme places a strong emphasis on technology applications in accounting. Students will gain practical skills in using accounting software, data analytics tools, and enterprise resource planning systems. They will learn to leverage technology to streamline accounting processes, enhance data accuracy, and improve financial reporting. Students will also explore emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and their impact on accounting practices.

In addition to accounting and finance knowledge, the course covers business management and professional skills. Students will gain an understanding of performance management, corporate governance and professional practice. They will develop effective communication, teamwork, and presentation skills to collaborate with stakeholders and contribute to the success of an organisation.
