Which type of degree is better?


I am about to go to university and want to pursue a career as a Chartered Accountant.

I was wondering if anyone could advise me on my choice of degree.

In terms of being accepted for Articles, would it be better for me to do an accountancy degree or should I take my degree in another subject? I am aiming to work for one of the ‘big 4’ firms so I would like to hear from anyone with knowledge of their recruting policy in this respect.


My experience is a bit out of date but i was articled at Pricewaterhouse (as it was then) and did my degree in Accounting Science. I found it to be a great help in my FQE.
