Yunyang Yang is originally from China and is currently studying the ACCA professional accounting qualification online from the United Kingdom. Here Yungyang tells us about why she chose to study online with London School of Business & Finance.
The support I receive studying online is fantastic. If I have any questions I will email the tutor, and normally they respond in 24 hours, which is really good.
The skills I’ve gained on the qualification have included accounting budgeting, how to budget money weekly and monthly, and performance management. For me, as a business owner, I need to look at my performance and understand how the sales are going. If sales are going down, I need to find out why, and manage the relationships I have with my customers.
I try to study every day, usually one hour or two hours a day during the week. Before each exam day I have one month to prepare myself, so I will review the videos online, take the session tests, and then look over the feedback from my tutor.
My advice to other online students is to manage your time effectively wherever possible.
Sometimes I study until late in the evening, but I always receive feedback from the tutors very quickly.
The flexibility that studying with LSBF gives me is huge. You can check the course materials online and take a practice test anytime you want, which is a great facility to have.
