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.

Darren Sq

I wish to thank Tom for all he did in helping me to not only pass but perform very well in probably the most difficult exam I have ever had to prepare for. Tom went above and beyond what I would normally expect from a lecturer.
For example when CPA changed the online exam platform a few weeks out from the exam, Tom within a couple of days provided us with a tutorial on how best to approach the AFR exam using the new platform which was a huge help during a stressful time.
I had Tom previously at the P1 level as well and would consider him the most effective lecturer I have ever had.
The level of support and detailed notes he gave us throughout the course was brilliant and hugely impacted my exam result.

1st in Ireland for CPA Strategic Module, Advanced Financial Reporting

I would like to thank everyone in Griffith College for the prompt and efficient support provided to me during my studies in the year 2021.
I would like to thank also to Paula Byrne, an excellent and dedicated lecturer. Paula`s very well structured lecture notes, revision notes and her availability, support and encouragement have driven me to receive the highest score for Financial Accounting in the year 2021.
Thank you to all who helped me.

Mark O'Sullivan

I chose to study for my CPA qualification through Griffith College as it has an excellent reputation as one of Ireland’s leading third level institutions for exam success in professional accountancy. For me working full time, Griffith College was my first choice due to the flexibility that they offer students in preparing for and sitting examinations and for the past number of years I have been availing of their online lectures. I owe a great part of my success to the excellent tuition that was provided by Griffith College and I would strongly recommend them to anyone who is considering what institution to chose to begin their studies.”

Progression

Students must attempt exams in order by examination level, but there are no restrictions on the order of subjects you may take within an examination level. Should students wish to attempt examinations from the next examination level, they may do so, however, they must also register to sit the remaining subjects in their current exam level in the same exam sitting.
E.g. all remaining examinations at Foundation level must be applied for if attempting a subject(s) from the Professional level. All remaining Professional level examinations must be applied for if attempting a subject(s) from the Strategic level. The order of levels for CPA examinations is:
  1. Foundation - 4 subjects
  2. Professional - 6 subjects
  3. Strategic - 4 subjects (2 mandatory and 2 electives)

Students may not attempt a subject from a higher level if the prerequisite subject(s) from lower level(s) have not been completed or exempted. For example, students may not attempt Strategic Level Advanced Financial Reporting, unless they have passed or been exempted from Professional Level Financial Reporting. Please refer to the Prerequisites Table for details.

Students are allowed a maximum of 4 examination attempts per subject -  these attempts do not have to be taken in consecutive sittings.
