ACCA

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is one of the largest and fastest growing international accountancy bodies. ACCA has been in existence for over 100 years.

It is recognised and respected in 170 countries and currently has over 500,000 members and students all over the world.

The ACCA Qualification

The ACCA Qualification has been designed to provide career professionals working across all industry sectors with accounting knowledge, skills and professional values.

Embedded in the ACCA Qualification are the global accounting education standards set by the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC). There is a strong focus on ethics, professional values and governance. These are examined at the highest level in the ACCA Qualification and are a core element of your practical experience requirements.

Who are ACCA students?

ACCA students are not just members of the accountancy profession. ACCA members/students have the knowledge and the skills to succeed in other areas such as business consulting, taxation, IT, strategic planning, and general management.

No previous knowledge of accounting or finance is required to start studying for the ACCA Qualification. All you need is the motivation to invest your time (three to four years) in gaining the ACCA Qualification and achieving a successful career. Irrespective of your educational background or learning environment, the ACCA Qualification provides professional opportunities for everyone.

Why study for ACCA membership?

ACCA members have greater business knowledge than their colleagues, which provides them with more opportunities for advancement.

Holding the ACCA qualification will make you a more competent business or finance practitioner ready to take on more difficult and challenging tasks.

A comprehensive ACCA programme will help you understand and master the processes within finance and business organisations.

How to become an ACCA member?

In order to qualify for membership of ACCA you need to complete 14 ACCA Qualification Exams (nine of which you could be exempt from depending on your previous qualifications), have relevant working experience and be familiar with the Code of Professional Ethics. Depending on the number of exemptions, you are expected to complete the examinations within two to three years.

Examination sessions are organized by ACCA twice a year, usually in the first two weeks in June and December. Students can sit a maximum of four exams during each examination session. Computer Based Exams (CBEs), such as F1 – Accountant in Business, F2 – Management Accounting, F3 – Financial Accounting and F4 – Corporate and business law, can be sat at any time of the year.

How to register to study for the ACCA Qualification?

The ACCA Qualification will prepare you for a challenging and often demanding career as a professional accountant and for that it is not sufficient to rely solely on theoretical knowledge developed through an exam process. Therefore, a key component of the ACCA Qualification is gaining relevant practical experience.

  • June exam session (Applications must be submitted by 20 February prior to the exam session)
  • December exam session (Applications must be submitted by 30 August of the current year)

New students are required to submit the following documentation to register to study for the ACCA Qualification:

  • University diploma/Post secondary school diploma (where the applicant lacks a university degree)(*- Certificate of Student Status)
  • Certificate of examinations passed at university
  • Passport
  • A passport sized photograph
