The SAF academic success model
If you're wanting to move to the next level in your academic success, you are encouraged to take advantage of the coaching resources available. A dedicated School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) team is here to support and coach you in order to help you maximize your learning potential.
The professional student concept is the alignment of body, mind and action in taking ownership and being proactive in your learning experience while aspiring to be the professional you've always wanted to be. Learn and benefit from seeking out the coaching you need to be successful, acknowledging that there are many skills and competencies yet to be acquired.
