At the heart of northern business since 1882

Northern Society supports future finance talent at Northumbria University 1 September 2013

ICAEW and the Northern Society of Chartered Accountants (NorSCA) were delighted to share in the success of final year accountancy students who graduated from Northumbria University this summer.

One student from Newcastle Business School’s Accounting and Finance subject swept the board to receive several awards from ICAEW. Abdul Mohith received:

  • ICAEW Prize for the Best Final Year Student Performance in Financial Reporting and Auditing (BA Honours, Accounting);
  • Northern Society of Chartered Accountants’ Prize for the Student with Best First year results (BA Honours, Accounting); and
  • Tyne & Wear Society of Chartered Accountants’ Prize for the Best Second Year Student in Financial Management (BA Honours, Accounting).

Abdul has now started training as an ICAEW Chartered Accountant, which will involve studying for the ICAEW accountancy exams and a three year programme of structured work experience. The official presentations were made at the graduation ceremony held at Northumbria University on Wednesday 10 July 2013, by Deputy President NorSCA Andrew Jackson FCA and Christopher Soan, ACA Chairman of Tyne and Wear Society of Chartered Accountants.

We wish Abdul all the best for his new job with a major accountancy firm and future success training to be an ICAEW Chartered Accountant.’

Senior Lecturer, Programme Leader for BA (Hons) Accounting Programme, Barrie Mitchinson said: ‘As Programme Leader I am delighted that an organisation as prestigious as ICAEW is willing to acknowledge and support the hard work of our students through the awarding of these prizes. I know the accreditation of the programme and the prestige this engenders plus the broader support of ICAEW in such areas as career advice and guidance to our students is seen as a very valuable relationship by the university and I would like to take this opportunity to thank ICAEW for their continued support.’

The BA (Honours) Accounting programme at Newcastle Business School is aimed at students with an interest in pursuing a career in accountancy or related areas. It is professionally accredited and graduates from the programme have taken up training contracts with professional accountancy firms and other leading international businesses such as PwC, KPMG, EY, Deloitte, Procter and Gamble and VATEch-Reyrolle. Other graduates are employed in industry and commerce, both in the UK and overseas.
