During my school days, I had taken part in debates, speeches, and sports competitions. I am able to understand procedures and instructions and to be able to think critically and logically. Right now, I am working as an Assistant Teacher at Sylhet Cambrian School and College. Here, I learned how to communicate with people. I first have the idea of earning a higher qualification in Accounting and Finance when one of my friends told me about what he does in his role as finance manager of an international company; he inspired me to look deeper into the field and that was where my interest in accounting and finance was first rooted. The MSc Accounting and Finance [Advanced Diploma Route] programme will earn me a Master’s degree and the status of being ACCA exam qualified, which is one of the key requirements to becoming an Affiliate member of ACCA. I think this MSc Accounting and Finance [Advanced Diploma Route] programme at BPP University is the right choice for me to achieve my career goal.

This course will develop critical understanding on key concepts of main accounting and analytical skills to design solution for problems in business arena. Earlier I studied Mathematics, Research Methodology, Advanced English, Bangladesh Economics which will help me to understand and complete this MSc Accounting and Finance [Advanced Diploma Route] programme. After completing this MSc degree, I aim to develop my career as a Financial Analyst or Chief Accountant in an international firm in my home country.
UK is one of the world’s leading destinations for international students. So that I prefer to studying the UK instead of studying in my home or another country. UK Education provides the latest academic knowledge, practical tools, techniques, applied knowledge, practical approach in learning. In Bangladesh degrees do not maintain international standard and have not got international accreditations. Also, learning materials are not adjusted with latest developments. On the other hand, UK prepares their students with soft skills. In my home country tuition is provided to get students to pass the course, no ‘soft skills’ given. But in the UK, students are developed personally, academically and professionally and become career-ready. The tuition fees and living costs are high in many cities that does not provide proper living standard for international students. UK course duration is shorter than other countries and Course fees, living costs are less when compared to other countries. My home countries’ organizational structures are mainly developed similar to UKs. Therefore, employers are more comfortable with UK graduates. So I think earning a UK degree will valuable for my career.
