What our students say?

“After university, I tried really hard to get into accounting but the fact was that without any experience, it was extremely hard to find my first job in accounting. Without an impressive resume, I knew I just needed to have a chance to prove that I was actually employable.

During the Professional Year program, I've learnt way more than I thought I would. It definitely strengthened my communication skills and the CV training was very beneficial, too. On top of that, the internship was one of the most important experiences I have ever had. It was my first step into my dream career and it was an amazing opportunity for me to show people what I could do. Overall, the program gave me a lot of confidence and is truly a worthwhile course to take. During my internship I got offered a job and I’m currently working in Corporate Finance Division of my Host company. - Tailin Chen
