What will you achieve?

As a learner successfully passes each exam, they are eligible to gain a diploma issued by ACCA. Also, once a student successfully passes the last three papers in the Applied Skills level and passes the ACCA Ethics and Professional Skills Module, students will be eligible to submit a research analysis project (RAP) to Oxford Brookes University to earn the BSC Hons in Applied Accounting.

A student who completes all three Applied Knowledge, six Applied Skill and four Professional papers will become an ACCA affiliate. Once the learner gains 36 months of relevant work experience on top of clearing the 13 exams, the student officially becomes a member of the ACCA.
