This is a really excellent link for ATI students wishing to gain a degree!  .  I am very fortunate to have secured a Trainee Accountant position with top firm Crowe Horwath at the beginning of my final year. I am now looking forward to starting my new job and completing my studies with the ACCA having obtained nine exemptions from the thirteen ACCA exams”.
