Accounting student Emma notes that one of the main attractions of the BA (Hons) Accounting is the wide range of modules for all different accounting routes, exemptions for the professional exams and that it is internationally recognised
Emma Ryan is a WIT President’s Scholarship student. She started on the BA (Hons) Accounting in 2020 and is a past pupil of Cashel Community School.
I wanted to study this course at WIT because:
The accounting course in WIT offers a wide variety of exemptions for the accounting professional exams you complete after your degree. The class sizes are small. All students and lectures were very approachable and helpful during the open day and the campus was easy to navigate!
Why I would recommend studying in Waterford:
It is an internationally recognised degree that offers the most exemptions for the professional exams. It has strong connections with many of the main accounting companies in Ireland. The course covers a wide range of modules for all different accounting routes you could take. The class sizes are small which makes lectures more personal; everyone’s questions will always be answered.
My favourite module:
My favourite module to date is Financial Accounting. I enjoy this area of accounting and it is what I wish to specialise in once I finish my degree. It’s full of numbers and little theory which is what us accountants like best.
My advice for CAO applicants to this course:
Definitely do research into what accountancy route you want to take post degree. Research some of the modules so you can see what the course is about and apply for all scholarships... you never know your luck!
