Studying Accounting & Finance

I chose to study accounting and finance as I had previously studied accounting at college, and studying it became my passion. I do really love studying accounting and I find it very interesting and exciting. I think that accounting is at the heart of the business, and it is the thing which leads the business to success.

"Coming to study at Leeds Beckett was a natural decision. I immediately noticed the university as I live in Leeds, and so when I was looking for where to study I decided to look at Leeds Beckett. I researched the course and discovered it was exactly what I was looking for. I also saw that there were people who had studied accounting here who had gone on to be very successful in their career after graduating - including of course Sir Bob Murray CBE - and I decided that Leeds Beckett was definitely right for me.

"I have found university difficult and have struggled to cover the costs that come with university life. It is a challenge to work and study at the same time, especially with the impact of Covid-19.

"I moved to Leeds at the age of 14 from Czechia, and Yorkshire became my adopted home. English is my second language, and the scholarship will help me to have more time to study and be able to achieve the best possible results.

"My ambition is to continue to do the very best that I possibly can at university, and this scholarship will help me to do that. The scholarship will allow me to have more time to study and succeed at university, meaning that I will be able to fulfil my dream of having a successful career in accounting.

"Knowing that this scholarship is supported by Sir Bob Murray CBE makes me feel great respect for him. I can see he has noticed not only how important accounting is, but also how important education is in general, and that he believes a person's finances should not prevent them from being able to study at university."
