At the moment Accounting graduates are in high demand. Graduates are getting training contracts with ACA and ACCA firms.

What attracts me to this course is an opportunity to work in a wide range of organisations : industry, practice, public and financial sector. The course offers a wide range of subjects which gives you a solid knowledge and it will prepare you for your future career. The size of the class group is reatively small, so students have a greater level of contact with their lecturers. The course is challenging but rewarding. I would advise this course to anybody who has an interest in Accounting & Finance. As for myself, I received the Student of the Year Award based on academic performance.
