Students Studying

Graduates and Part-qualified Accountants

Kick-start your professional career

Your degree offers an excellent foundation for embarking on a professional qualification. Taking that general knowledge to the next level by obtaining a specialist qualification that demonstrates to employers, clients and the general public that you have the training and skills necessary to carry out accountancy work to the highest standard.

We recognise your achievements
