The reason that I choose Raffles University to study Bachelor in Accounting (Honours) is because the number of exemption that I received for the professional accountancy examination like ACCA. BAC offer students many options for their career opportunities. BAC offers internship programme as it is a must for the student to complete their final year. This internship allows the student to gain experience and get some exposure on the working environment which related to the industry and study field.
The most enjoyable and memorable experience that I gain from this program is when we get the opportunity to meet and learn new things from the employer. It really helps us a lot in building relationship and networks. Moreover, it is also give us the view on what type of skill and knowledge the employer looking for when they recruit fresh graduates.

With incredibly supportive friends and lecturers who were nothing short of champions, I was challenged to discover a voice and talent I didn’t know I had.
Having been shaped in part by the friendly, collegial and competitive yet creative, environment at RU, I found myself able to communicate and collaborate in ways that enabled me to build my confidence, sharpen my skills and to be more disciplined.

The lecturers and academic advisors have been supportive and helpful during my study journey.
