THE FUTURE is bright for young accountant Darren Fegan who graduates today with an MSc in Advanced Accounting from the University of Ulster at Jordanstown.

Darren was also awarded the  Chartered Accountants Ulster Society prize for achieving first place  overall in the examinations.

In September 2010, Newry man Darren took up a position of Trainee Accountant with FPM Accountants.

FPM’s  Managing Partner, Feargal McCormack said, "I am delighted with Darren's  achievement  – which is not surprising as he had proven himself to be  an exemplary student during his summer work placements in FPM.

"FPM will continue to be fully supportive of the MSc in Advanced  Accounting programme, having recruited many students of a very high  calibre over the years."

The future is certainly bright for  these accounting students, who have all successfully completed an MSc in  Advanced Accounting, a prestigious postgraduate programme at the  University of Ulster, which attracts high calibre accounting graduates  from Northern Ireland and elsewhere in the UK.

"Darren is now one step closer to becoming a qualified Irish Chartered Accountant," added Helen Fee, Course Director.

"This  has been one of our largest cohorts in recent years and I am delighted  that, given the current economic climate, nearly all of the students on  the MSc in Advanced Accounting programme (over 90%) have secured  training contracts with accountancy firms in Ireland.

"These are the  accountants and decision makers of the future and I wish them every  success."
