What Our Students And Alumni Say

Past and current students have shared their experiences of studying their accountancy courses at Griffith College as well as the positive impact it had on them.

Paula, I would like to thank you for your absolute dedication to teaching and for your availability to answer questions, all on your own time. I found the WhatsApp group very helpful. I have never had a lecturer that showed such generosity in helping their students, it's phenomenal. My 85% was all down to how prepared I was for the exam and that’s down to you as a lecturer.

Michael Baker

As a mature student with a young family, Griffith College has proven to be an excellent choice in helping to achieve my goals, leading to passing six exams in the first year. The e-Learning option is excellent, the live lectures are well structured and all relevant study material is received in a timely manner. Tutors are always approachable and on hand to answer any queries and information is very clear. I would recommend Griffith College as a study provider for the ACCA qualification.

Through Griffith's high quality and flexible courses, I was able to prepare for the ACCA exams while working full time and studying online. The lecturers give all the support I would expect if attending a class while having the lecture videos meant I could work around a busy schedule. With a strong focus on exam question practice and time management, Griffith lecturers really prepare students for exam conditions.
