Student Experience


“I wanted to advance in my accounting career, and ACCA felt like the natural path to follow. I studied accounting in my home country of Finland, but now I work in international accounting in Prague. I have an online coach at PCU, which was definitely what I needed to move forward. The coach puts a little pressure on me and keeps me motivated with my studies. I have always found it difficult to balance work and studies, but now I’ve found a suitable balance. ACCA can be quite tricky so it’s good to have someone who can help and support me when needed. I have also had very valuable hints on study and exam techniques, and some good tips for my upcoming ACCA exams.”
