The course was challenging, but fellow students and staff were fantastic and supportive. Most of the coursework was group-based, so I learnt lots from others and discovered my own strengths and weaknesses.
The teaching focused on current issues, linking what we were learning to the real world. Because of this everything had context, making it enjoyable and relatable.
I gained so much from the course and the University as a whole. The modules gave me great understanding in all the key areas relevant to me and my future. On top of this, my placement put what I learnt into context, increased my confidence and got my career started.
A degree alone has limited worth now in the graduate market. My BSc in Accounting and Finance gave me the relevant knowledge, crucial skills and vital experience for the first steps of my career.
