Michael Phan, Australia

Advanced Diploma of Accounting graduate, current Bachelor of Business (Professional Accountancy) student

The transition from TAFE to University study is amazing. RMIT really prepared me well and the degree paves the way for academic advancement, on top of the integrated workplace skills taught in the TAFE Accounting program. RMIT University is known for its close affiliation with the employment sector and its course structure that facilitates students to be work-ready. The Professional Accountancy degree program incorporates a year of full time work experience which gives me the competitive advantage I need upon graduation. It is an ideal program for students who want to gain practical experience while studying and be a step ahead of the rest. It definitely makes you stand out from the crowd!
