Professional work placement
You will have the opportunity to take a 12-month work placement, also known as an intercalated year, as part of our Undergraduate Partnership Programme. We offer this in collaboration with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), and with Cardiff and Manchester Business Schools.
Successful candidates spend the third year of their course in paid employment with an accountancy firm, or in an accounting role in business or public service. They may also start the first year of the ACA training contract, the premier professional accountancy qualification.
Students then return to WBS for their final year and those who perform well in their placement often receive an offer to join the company on graduation and start the second year of the graduate scheme to complete the training contract.
