What our students say

Erzsebet, Association of Accountancy Technicians (AAT): Diploma Level 4

“I chose to study at Weston College due to its excellent reputation and facilities. My course tutor was fantastic – extremely enthusiastic about the subject and very supportive.”

Erszebet is Hungarian and, as English is not her first language, she struggled with some aspects of the coursework. However, through sheer hard work and with the support of her tutor, she produced high quality assigments. Erzsebet was also named Accounting and Law Student of the Year at the College’s 2013 Celebration of Success Awards.

What next? Erzsebet aims to find employment as an accounting technician.
