Overview

A ground-breaking master’s programme that enables you to gain an MSc degree and your ACCA professional accountancy qualification at the same time

The University of London and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the global body for professional accountancy, are enabling you to complete an MSc in Professional Accountancy and your ACCA professional accountancy qualification at the same time. This route to the ACCA qualification will be of value to accountants aspiring to senior roles and enable them to stand out from the crowd in terms of their qualifications. Compared with the cost of studying for an accountancy qualification and a master’s separately, this will save time and money for many ACCA students.

The MSc modules are the first to be recognised by ACCA as counting towards the professional level of the ACCA qualification. You have flexibility regarding how you structure your studies and there are different pathways to the award depending on the level of entrance requirement that you have met. The University is providing a unique opportunity for you to choose face-to-face study support in London [pdf] for two modules of this programme. The programme pathways are outlined below.

Prestige

The modules on the new MSc in Professional Accountancy are being developed with academic input from UCL, one of the University of London's constituent Colleges. UCL is ranked seventh in the world's top universities (QS World University Rankings 2015/16).

Who will benefit from this programme?

The opportunity to gain a prestigious master’s level qualification is open to ACCA students, affiliates and members, no matter what stage they are at in their professional qualification journey.

ACCA members who are qualified and affiliates who have completed all the ACCA assessments can follow a route to ‘top-up’ their professional qualification with this master’s.

ACCA students who have passed the fundamentals level of the ACCA qualification can opt to continue towards their ACCA qualification by using the master’s as an equivalent to two of their final ACCA papers.

Programme details

The three ACCA modules (P1 to P3) you study as part of your ACCA qualification give you accreditation for prior learning (APL) for 90 credits of your master's. The two University of London option modules will be recognised by ACCA as part of your professional qualification.

Interactive and supported study

You study using online learning resources that include: multimedia content, formative assessments, learning activities and facilities for you to interact with your tutor and your peers. You can study independently with online support including access to an online tutor or you can study at a teaching institution with access to a tutor face-to-face (if this is available in your location). In addition to monitoring online forums and responding to queries, online tutors provide an introduction to the module at the start of the session and guidance on assessment.

Your time commitment

You can study at the pace you choose whether part time or full time. You can complete the MSc in under a year or take longer if that is more convenient. Each module is studied over a 22 week session, requiring an average of 12 hours of study per week.

This program is designed to impart concepts and practical knowledge of professional accounting to students and to develop their conceptual and analytical abilities for the attainment of professional accounting qualifications.

The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) Program has enjoyed a strong reputation as a highly-respected program since its launch in 1998. In 2008, the Program curriculum was re-designed to also cater for the emerging needs of non-accounting degree graduates who would like to equip themselves with intensive accounting education and prepare for a career in the accounting field. The Part One curriculum is equivalent to our Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Accountancy (PDPA) Program (http://www.bschool.cuhk.edu.hk/index.php/programs/postgraduate-diploma-in-professional-accountancy/program-overview), which is accredited by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA) as a conversion program under its Qualification Program (QP). The Part Two curriculum prepares accountants on how to integrate the various aspects of accounting knowledge and apply them to the work environment.

We are committed to providing our students with an open, dynamic and interactive learning environment. In addition to lectures, the Program provides students with ample opportunities to engage in two-way discussions with professors and accounting professionals in discussion groups, projects and seminars.

Chartered Professional Accountancy Designation

The Chartered Professional Accountancy (CPA) Order was created in May 2012 following the unification of the accounting profession in Quebec. It results from a merger of the Ordre des comptables agréés (CA), the Ordre des comptables généraux accrédités (CGA) and the Ordre des comptables en management accrédités (CMA). The Order thus represents all the areas of expertise of the profession—assurance, financial accounting, management and management accounting, finances and taxation —at the service of enterprises, organizations and the public.

The CPA Order comprises over 36,000 members and 7,000 future CPAs. By combining its distinctive forces under a single order, the Quebec accounting profession strengthens its position both nationally and internationally.
