Why did you choose your course?

A relation of mine had completed it in previous years and really enjoyed it! He encouraged me to do it.

Are you happy with your choice of course?


On reflection, what made it the right or wrong choice for you?

I picked the I.T stream in third year and really enjoyed the practical subjects, it was a change from all the theory in years 1 and 2.

How many hours of organised classes do you have per week? (labs,tutorials,lectures,etc)


Are your lectures/labs mainly based on or off the main campus?


Is your course weighted more on

End of year exams

Is there an option to study abroad on your course?


What are your favourite aspects of your course?

I love the mathematical/accounting/finance subjects. I also enjoyed doing these subjects through I.T.

What are your least favourite aspects of your course?

I hated full theory based subjects with 100% final exams!!! I definitely think all subjects should have some type of a C.A.

Was your course what you expected?


What do you wish you had known before choosing this course?

I was pretty aware of what to expect from talking with people that had completed this course before.


Anything I'v ever needed was always at hand.
