You’ll be taught by tutors who are experienced practitioners with strong links to the accountancy profession, including authors, examiners and markers for international professional bodies. Throughout your studies, you’ll have close contact with expert practitioners, analysts and consultants who’ll give you invaluable insights into current industry practice.
