Oxford Brookes University

Oxford Brookes University has over 150 years of history. We started out as a small School of Art in borrowed teaching rooms and have grown into one of the UK’s top modern universities with a local, national, and international reputation for teaching and research excellence.

For the second year in a row Oxford Brookes was hailed as the UK’s top university in the latest QS Top 50 Under 50 Ranking. The University moved up to 40th in the world within the rankings and is again the only UK institution to make the list.

Oxford Brookes University is incorporated by Statute pursuant to the Education Reform Act 1988 and was created University by the Further and Higher Education Act 1992. This is the root power for the University’s ability to grant awards including degrees, diplomas, certificates, etc. These powers are granted on the basis of Oxford Brookes University designing and operating appropriate procedures for assuring the quality and standards of its awards. In doing this, the University is subject to review by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) and is subject to regulation by the Office for Students (OfS).

So although you don’t physically attend Oxford Brookes University to gain the BSc (Hons) degree in Applied Accounting, the degree program is of the same rigorous standard as other degrees offered by Oxford Brookes University and meets the standards set for UK higher education. By gaining the BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting, you will not only demonstrate to potential or existing employers that you possess all the relevant graduate skills to equip you for a great career in accounting and finance, but you will also establish an association with a university that has a reputation for excellence.

We have a lot to be proud of and you can see some of our recent results and achievements at https://www.brookes.ac.uk/about-brookes/at-a-glance/
