Students triumph in national accountancy competition

Six of our Economics students have triumphed in the Institute of Chartered Accounts for England and Wales (ICAEW) National Business and Accounting competition .  Held at St Hugh’s College in Oxford the students were challenged to examine detailed and complex accountancy data and act as business advisors for a hypothetical company. During the day they discussed solutions to iICAEW BASE - Oxford Heat Winners - Burford Schoolssues raised and then presented their conclusions to an audience of over 100 people.  The competition offers a unique and exciting experience for students enabling them to develop key employability skills and understand what it’s like to be an ICAEW Chartered Accountant.

Mr Brooks, Head of Business of Studies, said ‘The team were absolutely superb all day and tackled the material, which was very complex and extensive, with great maturity.  They were delighted when they won and I feel immensely proud of their achievement.’

Having won their regional heat against tough competition they will now go on to the final in Birmingham this summer.
