What is ACCA Diploma in IFRS (DipIFR)?

ACCA Diploma in IFRS (DipIFR) is an international qualification in International Financial Reporting Standards, developed by the leading professional accounting organization - Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). Obtaining this qualification will raise your professionalism in IFRS to the next level.

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 recognized and respected in 181 countries and currently has over 198,000 fully qualified members and 486,000 students worldwide.



IFRS is a major issue for most companies and finance professionals. Over 90% of the world‘s leading economies either require IFRS or are converging with it, so few companies can afford to ignore the need for their staff to understand IFRS and its implications for their business and financial reporting.

Who is the DipIFR for?

This programme is intended for professionals working in accounting, audit and finance who want to gain an internationally recognized qualification in International Financial Reporting and broaden their knowledge of the theoretical and practical aspects of IFRS.

To be eligible to take the Diploma you should provide evidence for:

  • three years’ relevant accounting experience (by submitting a letter from your employer), or
  • a relevant degree plus two years’ work experience
