Study accounting and finance online

What if there was a way to study the equivalent of an Undergraduate University degree from the comfort of your own home…?

AND at a fraction of the price…?

With Open Study College, this idea has become a reality with our Level 4 and 5 Accounting and Finance courses.

The detailed courses cover all aspects of Accounting and Finance that you would uncover during a university degree, in addition to essential skills and how to implement them in your own business:

  • Personal and managerial skills
  • Financial management and control
  • Organisational structures and analysis
  • Marketing and performance management

Studied through distance learning, these courses are equivalent to the first 2 years of an Undergraduate degree, offering you an accredited certification upon completion.


ATHE qualifications

ATHE (The Awards for Training and Higher Education) provides a wide selection of qualifications in a multitude of industries. The available courses range from university progression courses to training courses and development.

Upon completion of the Accounting and Finance Level 4 and 5, you will receive a Level 4 Extended Diploma in Accounting and Finance and a Level 5 Extended Diploma in Management. This qualification is fully regulated by Ofqual.

On completion of these courses, you will be able to progress onto a final year of an accredited Undergraduate Degree programme or equivalent in order to complete the entire degree.
