    My dad's a chartered accountant. No I don't lol, I spent enough time working in them to put me off. Depending on your degree., things will be different. Example I have an economics and accounting degree. I got 5 exceptions from the acca qualification, but that qualification has no entry requirements any man or women can start it straight from school, with no degree. That's why 98% of the students studying it are freshis

    I never say mainly for anonomity reasons - my speaking style, writing style, mannerisms, opinions etc combined with the personal information that I've already put on TSR in the past would make it really easy for a family member or a friend to identify me on TSR (if they were on here), which I don't really want to happen for various reasons

    No they don't lol. There's a big difference between a fca and an acca. If you do cima you can't open your own firm. Nor can you do financial accounting.

    To become a Chartered Accountant, you have to have 3 years of progressive work experience (in addition to passing the exams).
    Most jobs require a degree to get a foot in the job market...

    Some of the Accounting bodies require a degree to do them anyway (apart from special apprenticeships which are because large Firms like KPMG have agreements with these bodies).

    Uni is a complete different experience. For one the teaching is very different. Lectures and seminars at uni. The lectures at college are 8 hours long. Also at uni you get coursework. College you don't.
