Build a successful career as a finance professional in any sector with our ACCA (part-time) Fundamentals Level course.
*The length of your course will be determined by the number of modules you take. You will study on a modular basis and the components you study will depend on your existing qualifications and career goals. ACCA papers F4-F9 offered.
The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is one of the world's leading professional accountancy organisations with nearly 450,000 members and student members in more than 170 countries. ACCA members work in public practice, industry, commerce and the private sector. The globally recognised ACCA qualification is an established route to professional status - allowing you to use the 'ACCA' letters after your name.
The ACCA qualification is the fastest growing accountancy qualification in the world and in the UK is one of the recognised accountancy qualifications for Companies Act purposes.
Within ACCA there is a strong focus on professional values, ethics and governance - skills which are essential as the accountancy profession moves towards strengthened codes of conduct, regulation and legislation with an increasing focus on professionalism and ethics in accounting.
All you need from your employer is the chance to apply your learning and build up your practical experience and there's no need for you to take time off work to attend college or to study for exams.
