(Student Profile)

Robert Chapman

I definitely would recommend this course. The accountancy skills I have learned are the greatest practical aspects as now I can perform checks and prepare budgets with the best of them. I most enjoyed the project type assignments that allow me to do lots of in-depth research because it gave me the chance to practise what I had been taught. I think the Finance tasks were the most challenging as previously not having a lot to do with finance statistics made the challenge that much harder. It really is a good learning experience and a chance to meet lots of new people. The facilities are great and very modern and certainly enhance the learning experience. The support is very good- all the lecturers are very approachable and you have the chance to contact them if you are stuck on a subject.
