I am nearly mid way through my degree in accountancy. I have 2 and a half years to go (doing it part time). I will be exempt from 9 exams through cima/acca so will only have to sit around 5/6 exams when I get my degree to get fully qualified. My lecturer at uni said it normally takes around another 3 years!!! I'm not sure whether to take a break from studying when I finish or go straight into professional exams. My work is already paying for my course and lets me go during work time so they will probably pay for all my exemptions and professional exams, etc (well they better)!
It feels like I will be studying forever! If it takes this long I will be nearly 30 by the time I am qualified!
So did anyone do it this way and if so how long did it take you to get fully qualified?
