What our students say...

"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 relatively 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." Zorica Dragovic
