Class sizes are small – typically no more than 40 students – and there is even an internship option to make sure that you can graduate with more than a post-graduate diploma, but also real world skills in your field or industry of choice. Everything is arranged to make sure you are ready for a brilliant career.

You could find yourself accepting a high level role in a large firms accountancy department, with an accountancy practice, or even in business consulting.
