Accountancy student’s hard work adds up

An international student from China has excelled both academically and professionally during his time at the University of Ulster.

Qingyun Liu from Yiyuan County, in Shandong Province, has completed 11 professional ACCA exams, receiving top marks, as well as his BSc Hons Accounting, in which he gained a first class honours degree.

He spent two years at the University of Ulster studying Accounting on a joint programme with Dongbei University of Finance and Economics in China, where he will graduate this summer.

Dr Gillian Armstrong, head of the Accounting Department, said: “Qingyun Liu is an exceptional student who has utilised his time at Ulster to progress his academic studies, to gain a professional placement, to undertake professional accountancy exams and secure a postgraduate place at the London Business School.

“In year two after completing a placement with Ernst and Young, Belfast, he was offered a permanent post in their audit and assurance department, but has decided to complete postgraduate study before moving into employment.”

Qingyun, who has returned to China ahead of today’s graduation ceremony, said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the University of Ulster. One of the best things about thedegree is that I could complete the professional ACCA exams at the same time.”
