TESTIMONIAL
Songmei Liu at UWA
 
The most important reason I had for studying the Master of Professional Accounting course at UWA, was that I wanted to be an accountant in the future. During the first year units, I learnt a lot, not only about accounting but also about how to become a great learner.
All my teachers and lecturers had a good background in professional accounting and I know they want us to be successful in the future.
