University of Portsmouth, 1st Class Honours Graduate (2020)

I took up a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Accountancy and Financial Management Degree with the University of Portsmouth as I felt it was a programme that would be relevant to my career objectives. This programme also gave me exemptions for certain ACCA examination papers. I would recommend studying with UOP for these reasons mentioned.

The programme structure was manageable overall. The lecturers were very professional and they willingly shared their experiences with the students, which made the learning more meaningful.

Studying for this Degree has made me realise that I am never too old to study and that I should never give up. As a father of two teenage boys, I hope to inspire them to do their best in their endeavours having seen my tenacity and perseverance in completing this programme while working full time. My determination, hard work and firm belief in myself enabled me to complete this programme.

On the whole, this programme has enhanced my critical thinking and research skills. I am confident with the knowledge and skills I have acquired that I can be an added value to my company.

University College Dublin, 1st Class Honours Graduate (2020)

To further my studies, I enrolled with University College Dublin as it offers an academically challenging, and satisfying, honorary Degree programme. I feel that achieving these honours represents one’s ability to learn, their discipline to work hard and their motivation to achieve more.

The biggest lesson this programme has taught me is how value should be created. As resources such as time are valuable and limited, this course has helped me understand that it is very important to make full use of my resources to create and deliver value effectively so as to directly make meaningful contributions in life or work.

I opted to major in Finance as I believe it is an exciting field that presents many job opportunities and requires both analytical skills and creativity. This programme has also taught me the importance of collaboration as many projects require in-depth communication, understanding and information exchange. Through the process, I learned how to communicate and cooperate more effectively and correctly. As a Finance student, I appreciate that I was able to learn while also improving my communication skills.

I would recommend UCD to other students as it is ranked among the Top 1% of universities in the World*. In addition, it is an elite business school that also holds the Triple Crown international accreditations, representing the highest form of achievement and recognition for business schools.

The University’s Degrees are recognised by the Chinese Service Center for Scholarly Exchange (CSCSE). Having recognition in China means more opportunities and options are made available as China’s impact on the world economy is evident.

University of Portsmouth, 1st Class Honours Graduate (2020)

As I am interested in Accounting, I chose to study a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Accountancy and Financial Management (Top-up) Degree with the University of Portsmouth. I decided on this University as it offered exemptions for the ACCA Fundamentals-level papers, which I could leverage on in the near future.

This programme has enabled me to become more disciplined through studying for the syllabus and working on my assignments. Through doing so, I have learnt to keep a step ahead of the tasks required of me. As an Account Executive who is currently managing multiple accounts at once to ensure all my clients are up-to-date with their campaigns, I am now able to provide better customer service and enhance the company’s reputation.

Overall, I would recommend the University of Portsmouth as I was able to complete the programme in only 12 months*, which allows students to enter the workforce earlier and gain more experience comparatively.

*Students who have completed selected ACCA Fundamental Skills papers may apply for exemptions for up to 6 modules when they enrol for the Bachelor of Arts (Honours)
in Accountancy and Financial Management (Top-up). Only part-time students who receive exemption for all 6 modules may complete the programme within a duration of 12 months.

Programme taken: Bachelor of Business in Banking and Finance (Double Major)

I decided to further my studies as I believe that formal education is required to understand managing a company. Through a great consultation provided by Kaplan, I chose Murdoch University as they offer a lot of learning support, and I felt more confident studying with them to achieve my educational goals.

I opted for a Double Major Degree as I believe doing so opens more career paths and would improve my job prospects. I selected the Banking and Finance specialisations as I often work with banks and other financial institutions and knowing how they operate helped me understand my clients better. Studying this Degree has introduced me to various financial concepts such as budgeting and financial analysis.

As a part-time student, Murdoch University made studying easy for me. Lessons were evenly spread across alternate weeks and I had the flexibility to choose when I wanted my lesson to be. This ensured that I could plan my work schedule in advance to avoid clashes. If I needed support, the Student Support team always responded quickly to resolve any situation.

I feel that the lecturers are professional, sharing their work experience as a reference for us on several subjects. I truly appreciate their time spent helping me on many occasions and going out of their way to answer my queries even after lessons.

Taking a Double Major Degree is what I recommend. It strongly enhances your employability potential, makes it easier to get a job after graduating and provides you a competitive advantage through showcasing your competency in two different fields.

I have recommended quite a few of my friends and colleagues to study with Murdoch. With its flexible study schedules for part-time students, experienced lecturers and recognised accreditation, I could not ask for more.

As an A-level student, one of my favourite subjects was Economics, which introduced me to the business world. This eventually ignited my interest in Accounting and Finance, and I decided to pursue my newfound passion.

I began with a Kaplan Diploma in Accountancy which I am grateful for its excellent quality. In view of my academic efforts, I was awarded a scholarship by Kaplan which enabled me to progress to a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Accountancy and Financial Management (Top-up) Degree programme with the University of Portsmouth (UOP).

I chose UOP as it was awarded the Gold rating within the Teaching Excellence Framework. I also felt that the units were relevant and enabled students to prepare well for careers in accounting and finance.

The University provides plenty of online resources, including extra practice materials. Students can conduct further research by visiting the University online library, which is highly accessible. The pace of learning allows students to focus and absorb as much knowledge as possible.

My experiences with the lecturers have been very positive. They are caring and dedicated and they take the effort to ensure I understand the subject matter while making lessons well-structured yet fun and engaging. I am grateful to Kaplan for hiring such outstanding lecturers. Through furthering my studies, I aspire to grow as an individual and learn valuable life lessons.

Programme taken: Bachelor of Business in Accounting and Finance (Double Major)

My burning passion for accounting inspired me to strive to become either a company accountant or an auditor. I intend to persevere and complete my Degree first, before pursuing professional Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and Singapore Accountants (SA) qualifications. Therefore, I chose Murdoch University primarily as they are accredited by the ACCA and provide exemptions from foundation papers as well as direct entry into CPA programmes.

Having a strong interest in numbers, studying Accounting and Finance seemed like a natural choice, and Murdoch University allows me to study both Majors at once. This is a notable plus point as it allows greater specialisation and gives me a versatile education, and Murdoch University offers numerous other advantages to support my learning.

For example, its flexible study schedule allows me to plan out my studies. As a part-time student, the ability to organise my learning means that my work and study won’t conflict and I can optimise my timetable to study efficiently. I am even able to revise online through blended learning.

Throughout my studies, I have acquired work-related skills, such as QuickBooks, to provide additional value in my job. Studying is never a chore thanks to our friendly and engaging lecturers who are always available.

Murdoch University is renowned with accreditations from several well-known organisations, and I believe its affliations make it an advantageous choice for students. In addition, I advise others to study a Double Major Degree as it provides you a strong competitive advantage over those without one by empowering students to be more innovative.

Having worked in the Finance sector for 3 years, I decided to advance my education to a degree level in order to remain relevant. My drive to progress into a management role within this dynamic field influenced my choice of Majors. Therefore, I chose to study a Double Major Degree in Banking and Management with Murdoch University.

I felt that studying two Majors would provide me greater competitive advantage, and favoured Murdoch University due to its flexible study schedule. The lecturers were another plus point, encouraging out-of the-box thinking while guiding us every step of the way.

Overall, I have experienced better job performance. My improved critical thinking skills in particular, have allowed me to liase with several overseas clients effectively.

Upon completion of my studies, I was promoted from Executive Officer to Assistant Manager, and have been assigned greater responsibilities which I can easily manage as my Murdoch education has also imparted time management skills to me.

Studying with Murdoch University has made me appreciate its teaching methodology. Its Double Major programme progresses along at a manageable pace which encourages students to put in their best efforts, and offers twice the exposure and recognition of a regular programme.

Programme taken: Master of Science in Finance

Three important people in my life inspired me to take up this Master’s Degree. Firstly, it was my father Joseph, who was an exemplary educator himself; my wife Shirley, who encouraged me to go for my academic pursuit and lastly, my astute mentor Stephen, a fellow UCD alumnus who was always there to guide me through my career challenges. He was also the one who advised me to sign up for this programme.

The Master of Science programme at UCD was delivered by highly competent lecturers, who had augmented my knowledge in the field of Finance. I believe that the programme has equipped me with the abilities to better adapt to changes and resolve problems. It takes one from being efficient to being effective. The critical thinking developed at this level is not only valuable to my career but also to my family, social network and personal development.
