"The lecturers' enthusiasm for their subject and their enthusiasm in general was something that stood out for me. The lecturers I have had so far really seem to enjoy the subjects they teach and it was never a case of just going through the motions. The careers that they have outside of lecturing have also been a motivation for me to keep going with the ACCA programme.

The lectures and lecture materials provided are very exam focused with some lecturers even producing their own manuals! Real life examples are given which helps to put the topics into context; and makes the learning process more practical than theoretical. I have really enjoyed the course so far. With the knowledge I have gained from the ACCA programme at DBS, I have been able to pursue opportunities in my working life which would not otherwise have been available to me. The course has also introduced topics that I have developed a personal interest in outside of studying for exams.

I would 100% recommend DBS to a friend and already have!"
