Ever heard people saying that there is strength in numbers? This has never been truer when it comes to the world of accountancy. In fact, the growth potential for accountancy is huge, particularly for graduate accountants. In a survey of aspiring entrepreneurs, when asked what their biggest fear was, 51% of respondents said it was the financial burden of setting their business up. Therefore, if you want to build a career where you will play a pivotal role in managing a business’s finances, an accountancy career could be a great choice. There’s no more rewarding feeling than being part of a business's success.
Accountancy has a strong appeal amongst Generation Z. In a report published by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC), almost 50% of 9,000 respondents said that accountancy is appealing as a gateway profession to a career in business.

This perception is false; you can be applying through Clearing for several reasons. A big one is to avoid the anxious wait for A Level or college results day.
