Accounting & Finance

There is a huge range of opportunities within accountancy services spanning across all sectors, with almost every organisation in the world requiring individuals with a qualification in accountancy, therefore, it is one of the most useful skills to have.

We offer a range of courses from Level 5 up to Level 8 (HND).  These courses are designed to prepare you for employment and further study within this exciting industry.

Students will be given the opportunity to gain exemptions from accredited qualifications needed to be a practicing accountant, such as CIMA, ACCA and AAT.

As an accountancy student at West Lothian College you will benefit from our strong links with local employers and organisations. 

We know that not all learning takes place within a classroom or college setting. Students benefit from our excellent links with local employers and related organisations, by hearing from industry speakers with a wealth of knowledge of the sector, visiting different organisations and settings and taking part in sessions with professional accountancy bodies including CIMA/ACCA/AAT).

Gillian Thomson returned to education to study HNC Accountancy, and she talks about what she enjoys about the course, and what you can expect to learn if you apply.
