Why We Said Yes
Accounting and Finance
“I’m Irfan, I study Accounting and Finance at Birmingham City University and I’m currently in my second year.
As an International Student, I was impressed with the facilities that the University has to offer.
It really is a University that helps students stand out from the crowd when it comes to employment. I wanted to share a few things with you that I am most passionate about on my programme.
Firstly, I like the fact that my programme consists of seminars and one lecture a week. Working in small groups helps me to have that one to one time with my tutor, who are more than happy to help and answer any questions you might have.
My course has a placement year, which means after my second year, I can choose to do a paid twelve-month placement before coming back to the University to complete my third and final year. It’s a great way to put your learnings into practice, whilst developing you professionally, which will help you secure a job once you graduate.
Finally, I really like how my course provides you with opportunities to work within the University. Since I started here, I have found part-time work as a Student Ambassador, supporting with both Open Days and a Student Telemarketing campaign. I’ve also gained experience working as a Support Assistant in the University library.”
