Studying Accounting & Finance

At college Jacob studied business, maths and physics at college but it was maths that he enjoyed the most. Whilst studying he also undertook work experience in an accountancy firm where he saw people who were not progressing up the career ladder because they didn’t have a degree. He says this experience inspired him to study accounting and finance at Leeds Beckett and aspires to work for one of the big four accountancy firms after he graduates.

Throughout, the first year at university I was reliant on my student loan and working part-time in the city centre. Receiving this scholarship will lessen my financial problems massively, and allow me more time to concentrate on my studies.
