First Year Pathway in Accounting and Finance
UNIC can also provide you entry to the First Year of your chosen degree so that you complete your degree in three years. You will study your first year at UNIC before completing your second and third years at the University of Northampton.
The UK education system can be very different when you come from an international study background and therefore this option will give you a softer landing to your university studies, helping you to excel when you do progress.
Make sure you take a look at the entry requirements page to see if you are eligible to take advantage of this option.
You will study some modules with us here at the college and some modules at the University. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information about the modules taught at the University.
