    I haven't done both courses so I can't comment!

    However, I did do the accounting and finance course in DKIT.

    Realistically both courses are full of accounting and business subjects and you'll get much the same exemptions from each (if you go on to be an accountant). You'll still have to do 5-6 pretty difficult exams and 3 years work experience before you can qualify as an accountant.

    DKIT have more than their fair share of waffley subjects taught by lecturers throwing up hundreds of disorganised powerpoint slides that you'll forget immediately after your exams.

    As for jobs, a degree doesn't guarantee you a job. You get out what you put in, and the people who get the jobs will be people who apply for graduate positions, get the highest marks, and have some work experience (the more relevant the better).

    You would nearly be better looking for courses that involve a placement abroad even if they're 4 year courses, just from a personal development point of view.
