Summa Cum Laude Graduate Gearing up for a Future in Chartered Accountancy
Bachelor of Commerce Summa Cum laude graduate, Mr Julian Vorster, says this qualification puts him one step closer to attaining his goal of becoming a Chartered Accountant.
‘Studying accounting at UKZN has been an amazing experience. The quality of lectures is high! Having a firm understanding of accounting, auditing, management accounting, finance and tax really assists us students in becoming more marketable and can also ultimately assist us in becoming entrepreneurs too,’ said Vorster.
Vorster added that this achievement would not have been possible without the support of his family, his faith which kept him going and accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers.
‘PwC has been a major financial sponsor of my studies and without them, I would not be able to study at UKZN. My family has always been very supportive. They have always assisted me in whichever way possible,’ he said.
Speaking on his future career choice, Vorster said deciding to pursue the Chartered Accounting designation was an easy decision as this goal is what fuelled his love for accounting.
‘My current goal is to pass my Honours and thereafter start my training contract with PwC for three years. My ultimate goal is to become a Chartered Accountant, I must admit, this is a daunting task as four long years still lie ahead but a CA qualification is most certainly worthwhile,’ he said.
