My three sisters and brother all attended GCU and I chose to study Accountancy here as I have always been intrigued and captivated by the world of business. I thoroughly enjoy my programme as there is such a variety of modules, and I’m always leaming different things. This summer I had a summer internship job at BNP Paribas, which added to my experience.
