The UK University sector has suffered enormous upheaval as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In a very short space of time, university doors have closed, students have vacated the campus and academic staff have had to move quickly to online platforms to complete their teaching. In the absence of formal campus-based end of semester examinations in May-June and July-August (and possibly longer), academics have had to think about how to best assess their student cohorts.

This article provides a discussion of the challenges of Professional Accreditation in University Accounting and Finance Departments.
