Roshan's Story...

The reason why I chose the ACA is because of its international recognition, wide scope and strong career prospects.

The qualification equips you with a sound technical knowledge in various fields such as Accountancy, Finance, Tax, Law, Ethics and Business Management which are transferrable from industry to industry thus providing a strong footing in the business world.

I am currently an independent student and thus, a major part of my time goes into preparing for the exams and planning my studies on a regular basis.

The highlight of my career to date has been The Watts Prize from ICAEW which I received for scoring top marks globally in the Audit and Assurance paper. 

Chartered accountancy is a wonderful profession to start off your career, especially if you have a keen interest in business, accounting or finance.

The opportunities in this field are endless as almost every business needs a chartered accountant to advise on various business related issues. 

All you have to do is work hard and be passionate about your work!
