Are there any accountancy students out there?

Are there any accountancy students out there?

Students are often given a hard time for posting exam questions on Any Answers, but I'd like to change that situation for once.

As part of our preparations for AccountingWEB.co.uk's relaunch next month, we're examining options to expand our content and the audiences we serve - including accountancy students. For starters, I'd like to know how many of you drop by the site on a regular basis and use the facilities we offer.

More to the point - what could we do to help you more? If you've qualified in the past few years, or are a student now, please let us know your thoughts. One of the things that might be possible would be a subsection of Any Answers where members would be available to help students with their questions.

Feel free to post here, but if you're interested in talking through ideas in more detail, there's now a thread in our feedback group called Can AccountingWEB.co.uk do more for student accountants?

Students

I'm newly qualified but have been coming on here for quite a while.  I think a students area would be great - all students will ask daft questions and if they were posted in such an area it SHOULD reduce the risk of them being dumped on.  I have seen some of the 'disagreements' of AW members get out of hand, if this were to happen to a student it would more than likely put them off ever coming back to AW!

Was me, a while ago

I joined this site back when I was a student (many years ago!) and I think it's a great idea. AA has become very much an accountant's forum, as opposed to students or the general public asking an accounting/tax question and 'outsiders' do tend to be met somewhat sharply by some members, so I think it's a fab idea.

Thanks both

Perhaps two out of 100k isn't the flood of demand we were hoping for, but your encouragement is very helpful. We're talking around a few ideas at the moment and will seek other advice, but would you be willing to talk/email to us about the sorts of things that you might have found most useful when you were studying?

Thanks again for the feedback!
