Daniel Hook

BSc (Hons) Accountancy

Daniel Hook

When I started the course, I never dreamed I’d have two job offers lined up on graduation.

I’m fascinated by the way numbers form the underlying fundamentals of business. I love numbers. I like to understand how figures work. With several accounts in the family already, it was a natural progression for me to study Accountancy at university.

It’s the employability side of the course that’s made it exceptional. The course is theory-based but we apply what we learn to real life case studies, so the course aligns with the industry as much as possible, and our core modules are also structured to allow exemptions from professional exams.

The modules I’ve chosen have prepared me for the world of work. We get the opportunity to choose modules relating to a particular career. I’m interested in a career in tax so I’ve taken specialist modules in that area.

The Employability modules also provide experience of the application process. This includes experience of psychometric tests which helped me to feel prepared and confident to go out into the working world.

I never dreamed I’d have two job offers lined up on graduation. I was offered a part-time job when my placement hours were fulfilled, and I’ve now been offered a full-time role there when I graduate. I’ve also had an offer from Grant Thornton in Guernsey for a Tax Assistant role.

I feel I’ve discovered my potential. Since I’ve been at Edge Hill, I’ve met new people and learned new aspects of accountancy while also being provided with plenty of opportunities to excel.
