The benefits of choice
Accounting & Finance degree structure
The option to choose is a valuable asset. We believe that maximising your choice of degree programmes at the end of Part I is important for several reasons.
- Increased options: Why commit yourself to a single degree when you can keep your options open? When you select a Lancaster degree scheme on your UCAS form, you automatically gain access to a broad range of degree programmes.
- Deferred decision-making: Deciding which degree to take is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. For management subjects like accounting and finance, marketing or management science that are not typically studied at A-level, this decision is especially difficult because you don’t have much information to go on. Your prefered subject choice might sound great in principle but the reality could be different. What if you don’t like it? What if you’re not good at it? The last thing you want is to be stuck on the wrong degree scheme. By delaying the final decision on your preferred degree to the end of your first year, we ensure that you’ll know enough about the subject to make the right choice.
- Greater flexibility: Fashions and tastes change rapidly. What excites you today might bore you tomorrow. What looks like a great career choice now might seem less attractive in a year’s time. Lancaster's flexible degree structure means that you retain the ability to switch the focus of your degree as both your interests evolve and career opportunities develop.
