Need help breezing through your accountancy degree? Here are our top tips for success!
It’s not unusual for postgraduates studying accountancy to worry about workload, exam stress and other challenges associated with this field of studying. Accounting can be demanding, but also highly rewarding, with those at postgraduate level enjoying much higher earning potential and amazing job prospects when they graduate.
By studying the materials, taking the time to fully understand accounting principles, and working hard, you can enjoy a positive university experience at the University of Bolton! Here’s how…
Passing your studies with flying colours starts with excellent preparation work. What do you learn in accounting and finance degrees at postgraduate level (or what do you expect to learn)? How are modules delivered? And which modules are best for group learning, self-study, or a mix of both?
By knowing what’s ahead (and what’s expected of you as a student), you’ll be able to prepare in the most efficient way possible.
This is important across all subject areas, but the field of accountancy demands it even more because there are a lot of balls to juggle.
Being organised is an essential requirement for finance-based roles. Developing detailed schedules adds discipline and structure to financial systems in businesses, so by nature, accountants and finance workers have to be systematised in their approach.
Adopt good organisation habits early on and you can train yourself for any future workplace. So make sure you have a diary/planner to keep on top of classes, work-based training and study group dates.
We all need support from time-to-time, and fellow students can be a great way of helping you improve your study skills. Collaboration is important in the workplace, so by working with others you can improve your ability to excel when in a team.
Not only that, but accountancy careers rely on an element of business networking. It’s important to have a professional network you can use and turn to, and university is a great time to start this process.
Another way to get the most out of your studies is to apply your learnings to the area you wish to go into. If you haven’t thought about your chosen career path, now is a good time to do that. Consider what jobs you can get with an accounting degree, and which ones are best suited to your skills and passions.
The earlier you know what type of accountant you want to be, or what type of finance role takes your fancy, the sooner our tutors can tailor the course to fit your needs.
At the University of Bolton, our course leaders care about your personal and professional development, and will help you find your chosen path. Our dedicated Employability Team is also on hand to help you achieve your career ambitions, whatever they may be.
As a leading Greater Manchester university that’s been in the Top 2 in the UK for Student Satisfaction in Accountancy & Finance Courses* for the fourth year running, there’s nowhere better to study in this subject.
