    Deciding on what direction you want your life to take is hard. Working out how you are going to get there can be even harder!

    Do you know that you can pursue a qualification high and rich in demand in the current career and business world and market place?

    Accounting and Finance is the one and only career choice where you can work in different career fields which open you a wide range of opportunities in the work place.
    Pursuing an education in accounting and finance is very valuable and worth in the current place. To pursue a qualification in accounting and finance is very worthwhile. An accountant plays a vital role in the society.


    Why I chose Accountancy?

    I would love to share some facts about why I chose this course.
    I was learning AS Level. I did biology, chemistry and maths. Thereafter, I decided to go to university. I knew I couldn't afford for a degree when I looked through the fees. I searched for many alternatives to degrees. I also thought it should be much more worthy than a degree and which also gave me a career choice where I can earn more and go to senior level positions. I was told about ACCA from my relations. I found it also challenging to take commerce field course as I had no accountancy background at all. I thought I could manage with maths. But, I was guided clearly and I am learning ACCA which I find really enjoyable and interesting.I found it very much affordable. I also get a degree certificate from Oxford Brookes University. When I cannot afford for a degree I still get a degree certificate from a highly reputed university whilst completing the second level of ACCA. It not only brought back my respect but fulfilled all my desires to be successful.

    So, wouldn't it be great if their was a career choice

    1) That gave you lots of opportunities

    2) The chance of career and professional development and personal growth

    3) Variety in terms of the types and sizes of organisations you could work with

    4) A career which could provide you with responsible and prestige because it is vital to every business
    Not only these benefits, but the major point is that all organisations need professionals who understand finance, talented people who can help make the business a success. And professional accountants play a vital role in wider society too. They provide real value by giving businesses and individuals the confidence to invest, and that in turn, allows countries, organisations and, most importantly, people, the opportunity to realise their potential.
    Definitely you cannot say no. Then why wait? Consider a career in accountancy.


    Many of you wouldn't be aware of what ACCA is. It is the acronym for Association of Charted Certified Accountant. It is a professional qualification. You might wonder what is the difference between pursuing a bachelor's degree and of the professional qualification.Well, here it is - Even if you consider to do a bachelor's degree in accountancy you have to gain a professional qualification, too. It could be either ACCA,CIMA,ICAEW or even many more.ACCA is considered more popular amongst others because many population currently pursue all other qualification so now ACCA is placed the top and would be much more preferred by employers today.But, why ACCA is seen more significant is that it is popular among the others and highly preferable to the employers. Whilst completing the second level in the ACCA course you obtain a degree certificate offered by Oxford Brookes University called BSc.Applied Accounting.ACCA is an alternative route to accountancy and finance degree.

    You're probably better off answering individual questions, your post is very long and doesn't really tell you anything that Google couldn't also tell you.
