Dear Student, I want you to hold these pieces of advice dear to your heart
1. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR LEARNING: Attend classes, do the assignment visit the library and surf the internet to become a world-class Accountant. Most important – understand that while we expect our students to become self-reliant we are to help when that is needed. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
2. MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR TIME AT AUL: One of the great things about university life is the range of new experiences that will be available to you. You will have abundant opportunities to flourish as a student and as a person. At the Department of Accounting, AUL many of the opportunities are built into your programme while others are extra-curricular. Most of you will undertake co-operative education or practice placements as an integral part of your programme, ensuring that the world of learning is intertwined with the world of work. What you learn in the classroom is applied in the workplace which in turn gives you a deeper understanding of what you have learned in the classroom;
3. EMBRACE DIFFERENCE: University is a melting pot. You have come from different backgrounds and communities to pursue your ambitions as students. Work with other students and grow together. Ensure that you build character, courage and competence in all areas of your life.
4. NEVER LET GO OF GOD: In all that you do let God be the centre of it. Personally, have a living and current relationship with God. And with those few words of advice, I wish you every success in your study at the Department of Accounting AUL and I am confident that you will find it an immensely rewarding experience.
