I wanted to give a big thank you to the entire Phoenix team for playing an integral role in my journey of becoming an ACCA affiliate and for providing us with such an incredible opportunity through the OBU mentoring sessions. Heeba, you were amazing! Thank you for all your support (and for entertaining our million questions out of class hours).

Faiza Amir

My OBU Mentee experience with Phoenix Financial Training has been tremendously remarkable!

As the OBU program is completely different from the ACCA papers, I was extremely sceptical but the promising reviews of the PFT mentoring program did not take long to convince me to enrol for the course. Heeba and Ayesha were my mentors and I applaud their patience and professionalism with which they handled all the students. They not only said that they would be accessible via various means of communication but were actually available on Whatsapp, Skype and email every time I had a query.

Their strong critique and evaluation of my project helped me get a Pass grade on all components of my project. Thanks, Ayesha, Heeba and PFT!

Shazia Dhalla

I enrolled for the OBU Mentoring session in May 2017 and cleared my OBU Thesis on the first attempt!

It would not have been possible without the relentless support from my mentors; Ayesha and Heeba. Both guided me at every step. Both the mentors' availability would sometimes surprise me as I could contact them over Whatsapp, email or skype at any time. The detailed feedback throughout my OBU BSc journey played an important role in my success and is one of the reasons I would recommend Phoenix's Oxford Brookes University Mentoring Program to anyone who wants to pass in the first go!

I enrolled for the Oxford Brookes University Mentoring Program with Phoenix for May 2017 session and was very happy that I did so!

My mentor, Heeba is an excellent guide and is highly approachable. She would patiently answer any queries that I had pertaining to the RAP. She would also provide feedback and identify mistakes in my work which helped me in preparing my RAP. I really appreciate the support and guidance that she provided me whilst I was preparing the RAP.

If you are planning to go for OBU, don't think twice before registering with Phoenix!

'I want to take a moment to thank and appreciate my OBU mentor Ayesha for all her guidance and help throughout this whole experience. It was indeed a great experience and has taught me numerable lessons. My BSC project has been successful because of an incredible mentor who guided me and kept me motivated and focused throughout the whole thesis process.

 

She kept me determined and gave strong critique which ultimately helped me achieve my goal. I applaud the professionalism and discipline that my mentor displayed throughout this whole process and is certainly among one of the valuable things I have learned.'

After completing 12 ACCA papers with Phoenix Financial Training and having an amazing experience with them at every step, I did not need to think twice before enrolling for the OBU Mentoring program at Phoenix Financial Training.

A massive thank you to Ayesha Ma'am for mentoring me throughout the project. Her kind, facilitative and dedicated nature further motivated me to complete the project in a timely fashion. Her constructive criticism and tips were always communicated in a calm and collected manner which was a massive boost to my confidence especially when I was stressed out about the project.

I am so glad that I chose the program and would highly recommend the OBU Mentoring program at Phoenix Financial Training to everyone!

I would like to thank my tutor Taha Zia and Phoenix from the bottom of my heart for their support in helping me pass my exams.

 

F5 was one of the toughest papers for me but with their relentless support, I was successful in my exam attempt.

Tutors elsewhere are not as invested as ones here at PFT and I say this because Sir Taha went out of his way and inspired me during F5 QBE by sharing his life story and struggles while studying ACCA – whereas other tutors like to boast about their own successes.

Sir Taha made everything look easy and I believe that he would have studied from a special teacher in his life to be this compassionate and for me that exceptional tutor/mentor is him.

Tutors like sir Taha just don’t only teach, but also become a very important, special and valuable person in a student’s life journey.

Thank you for always being there and for your constant support and endless cooperation!

PFT: What sets us apart from other institutes

MH: The tutors are available around the clock and they have a greater sense of responsibility to help the students pass their exams rather than just delivering the lectures.
PFT: What advice would you give to the finalists

MH: Candidates follow the professional approach told by professional tutors to attempt the exam. Leave all the generic thinkings aside.
PFT: What is your favourite memory of PFT?

MH: The tension on sir Nikhil's face seems more than students face during exams days. He constantly repeats "We have covered everything". "Nothing will be out of the syllabus" and Pleeeease, don't worry". These dialogues play in my mind like a film!

I Passed my last ACCA paper P3 - Business Analysis with 78, now an ACCA Affiliate. P3 Brought a happy ending to my ACCA Exams Journey as this is the highest i have scored so far on my ACCA papers.

Thanking my P3 tutor Taha Zia for all his guidance, support and writing tips to help me score 78!

I Had done p5 before p3 with Vignesh, so i would like to thank Vignesh as his p5 classes and technique in approaching a paper of Performance management  personally helped me in developing the level of thinking required for P3.

I would like to thank all my phoenix tutors who taught me from F1 to P5 - Nikhil, Preethy,Richard, Victoria, Natalie and Euan.

Every paper of ACCA had started with lots of anxiety but the teaching and the studying pattern set by my phoenix tutors made everything get into its place and i could make it through my exams.

My knowledge about various standards got better and deeper rooted through your lectures. It just got improved and now I have confidence that I can face questions on standards. I always had this fear that being a qualified accountant, what if I am weak at standards. But now I don’t fear them. Your teaching skills are God gifted. I keep recommending all my friends to attend your class. Thank you for taking double the effort to help me pass. It’s your hard work and effort that directed me and many other students to success.

Looking back at my journey at Phoenix it all feels like I was a part of a movie. The intense moments before the exam, the celebration after results and the exploration during the classes, everything fell into place since day one. I felt comfortable, the tutors-helpful, students-friendly and the ambiance-homely.

Today i can proudly say "Yes, I was a part of PFT" and I would like to thank all the tutors who were a part of making me an ACCA Affiliate. The inspiration, experience and dedication on their behalf was undeniably the key to me passing my exams. Thank you!"

Dear Nikhil,

I just wanted to say I passed my ACCA exams and thank you for being a wonderful tutor to me when I did P2 and for being one among the phoenix tutors who made my study experience fun filled and time spent, worthwhile.

I have enjoyed your sessions a lot and can never forget the lively P2 revision classes! :)

Hope to see you some day if I come back to Phoenix again!

I have passed p4 with a score of 75 and I have also successfully become an affiliate with the grace of Almighty.

I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for gifting us with such a wonderful enriching class and remarkable teaching. You have been so constructive and relevant in teaching us vital information about important issues with real life examples that you made it so easy to learn in that it truly made a difference in the way I looked at p4 and p5.

Moreover, we as students, really appreciate the constant energy and effort you put into the subjects and your frequent little jokes that created such a light and positive environment in the classroom. We also respected your authority, yet felt comfortable enough to share ideas, ask questions, and discuss as if everyone inside the classroom was equal. That’s an environment that only few students get to truly experience and I feel truly blessed to be one of them.

Thank you once again for being one awesome teacher! God bless you and your family. Good luck with your future endeavors.

Although I work in banking, my client base is predominantly Corporate Treasury professionals, hence studying for the AMCT qualification has broadened my understanding of the issues faced by my clients and the breadth of responsibilty they cover. The material covered offers the right mix in terms of scope and detail, to properly equip treasury personel working in finance today.

Having completed stage one of the AMCT qualification in London before moving to the UAE, I was delighted to learn I could continue my studies locally with Phoenix. The teaching support offered by the team at Phoenix is conclusive and the organisation of group classes is designed to accommodate busy professional schedules.

I would recommend the AMCT (and Phoenix as a teaching provider) to anyone looking to develop their understanding of Corporate Treasury.
