After graduating from Nanyang Polytechnic with a Diploma in Accountancy and Finance, Miss Joanne Lee topped her cohort and was offered a scholarship to study at a local university.
But with her goal on becoming a certified public accountant, she decided to embark on the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) route with Kaplan Learning Institute (KLI).
She followed in the footsteps of her older sister, and enrolled in a preparatory programme for the ACCA at KLI.
KLI is a leading educational provider of professional qualifications in accountancy and finance in Singapore. With 28 training centres around the UK and Asia, it prepares more than 30,000 students a year for professional accountancy exams.
Joining KLI proved to be a great decision for Miss Lee.
"If you study at a local university, you have to study full time while paying huge sums of money. But with the ACCA preparatory course, I can work while studying, making it much less financially taxing," she said.
Completion of this course will earn Miss Lee the ACCA Qualification, which is essential for individuals aspiring to become certified public accountants.
"The ACCA preparatory course is very challenging. It is essential to have good lecturers who know how best to prepare you for the exams," said Miss Lee.
