"Looking back I am thankful for SP Accountancy's commitment to prepare me for my continuing education and the workforce. I obtained extensive knowledge of the accounting field and learnt how to apply concepts in a practical way through the course materials, projects and industrial training programme. The SP Accountancy course is well designed, comprehensive and informative and I really enjoyed my years of study in SP. SP lecturers are extremely committed, knowledgeable and willing to go extra miles for their students. They know the needs of the students and motivate them to maximise their learnings. I give a great deal of credit for any success I have in my professional career to the education I received from SP."
