  • A step towards becoming a professional accountant
  • Gives a professional qualification for working in the field of accounting
  • Flexible pace to complete the qualifications
  • Entry point to the ACCA qualification for people with non-accounting backgrounds
  • Get exemptions in the first three papers of ACCA qualification
ELIGIBILITY

There are no minimum entry requirements – you can start at any level. However, we strongly recommend you start at the Introductory Certificate if you have no formal qualifications, especially if it has been a while since you completed any studies. This is because students who start at the Introductory Certificate and work their way through the Foundation level-qualifications perform better in the higher level exams.
