When I thought of furthering my studies, Kaplan came to mind first because of its established name for private education in Singapore and around the world.

I chose this Accountancy and Financial Management Degree programme from the University of Portsmouth as it offers both specialisations in Accounting and Financial Management. Within 18 months, I completed the programme with First Class Honours. The Degree will open the doors for me to pursue my ACCA qualification ahead of my peers as it provides me with exemptions from ACCA Fundamental papers. As such, I can take the ACCA Professional papers directly should I choose to do so in the future.

Being part of an exclusive club’s financial team, this programme has expanded my perspective of the industry.

The programme helped a lot in enhancing my Accounting and Taxation knowledge, which I could readily apply to my profession.

Upon my completion of this Degree, I have also been granted exemptions from 9 ACCA Fundamental papers. This will help me to consider my future goals of obtaining the ACCA qualification more quickly as it is very useful for those in the Accounting field. I can then make up for ‘lost time’ during my youth when I was solely focused on developing my career.

I was looking to pursue an education that will enhance my knowledge and at the same time, open up good career opportunities as I progress in the Accounting field. The programme had a good combination of subjects that not only further deepened existing knowledge but also cultivated effective analytical and critical thinking skills, which I felt helped my job as I could provide my management team with more relevant analysis for decision making.

I was also impressed by the professionalism and patience of the staff at Kaplan when I needed more information about the programme. The affordable programme fees, flexible payment plans and the central campus location sealed my decision to study here.

This degree course is UK-based which is appropriate in Singapore and there is conditional exemptions from ACCA. It will help me when I plan to take the ACCA professional papers after graduation.

I chose this degree programme because its duration, class schedule and the modules are most suitable for me. One key reason was its conditional exemptions from ACCA for F1 to F9 papers. In fact, I plan to take up the ACCA professional papers after I graduate. I would also expect salary adjustment of around 20-30%.
