ACCA offers exemptions to students who have studied relevant accountancy qualifications prior to starting ACCA’s accountancy qualifications. This means that you may not have to take all of the exams in the Foundation level of the ACCA Qualification and you can start your studies at the right level.

You will need to pay a fee for each paper exempted. Exemptions are charged at the early exam entry fee.

Special exemption fee waiver offers for CA, CIMA, AAT and CMA Passed Finalists and University of London and University of Plymouth (NSBM) undergraduate programme completed students.

A key part of the ACCA Qualification is getting relevant practical experience in the workplace. Our exams will give you the theory behind your knowledge of accountancy, but you also need to have the practical experience to support it. Three years of work experience, alongside your exams and ethical awareness, will mean you are fully prepared for a challenging career as an ACCA Member.

Mercury’s work placement and career guidance programmes will ensure that you find employment at an ACCA approved employer.

This degree has been jointly designed by the University and ACCA to meet the requirements of a degree and also those of a professional qualification. Students of ACCA are now automatically registered for the Oxford Brookes University degree when they enroll with ACCA. When students have completed the Knowledge and Skills papers of the ACCA’s professional examinations, and the Ethics and professional skills module, they may submit a “Research and Analysis Project” to Oxford Brookes University which will be assessed by the University Business School staff.

This degree is recognised by the University Grants Commission.

To be eligible for the Oxford Brookes BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting you must pass the Financial Reporting (FR), Audit and Assurance (AA) and Financial Management (FM) exams and complete the other Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills exams by exam or exemption. Please be aware that students are required to successfully complete all nine Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills exams at least two months prior to the start of the submission period in which the student is seeking to submit. If you are exempted from any of the Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills exams based on a qualification more than 10 years old, you would be required to forfeit all of the exemptions in order to opt in to the degree programme.

The degree must be completed within 10 years of the earliest date of your first examination pass or the date of your first ACCA exemption being granted. Otherwise your eligibility will be withdrawn.
