A keen student seeking to forge a career in the UK financial industry, Devki chose GSM London to help her get ahead with a reputable, faster accreditation from the UK accounting bodies. Here she tells us why she’s very happy with her decision to study the BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance degree.
“I wanted to find a course that would provide a good understanding of the UK financial industry, and would also get me the UK accounting accreditations I need to progress in the sector. I’m happy I chose GSM London because alongside the academic study, it offers professional training and up to seven exemptions from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). This meant that I would be able to achieve my qualification sooner and move forward faster in my career.
“The system of lectures and seminars is great, classes are small and you get one-to-one attention.”
“The teaching system, combining lectures and seminars, is great. The lecturer gives you the information you need and then in the seminar the tutor goes over it, giving everyone a chance to ask questions and discuss in detail anything that you have not fully understood. It’s a huge advantage that the classes are small, because it means the tutor can communicate with you better. GSM London is brilliant at ensuring students get one-to-one attention.
“In addition, I also love the fact that GSM London offers practical careers support, for skills like CV writing, as well as vocational training. I have just attended a SAGE course, which taught me the workings of one of the main software packages used by accountants. This has all been good preparation for the competitive job market.”
