    That's great!
    In order to gain the BSc Degree you have to complete the first 2 levels of ACCA which consists of 9 fundamental papers (F1-F9).
    You can study at both universities. BPP is approved by ACCA and LSBF isn't approved institute by ACCA.
    Most institutes do not allow to work part-time for professional qualifications for international students outside EU.
    BPP allows students to work part-time which is unique about it. But, if you are from the Europe continent you can work part-time as well. I cannot put down any institutes but, you may choose the best one of your choice. There is a thread here of the discussion - http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1374724

    You can begin ACCA with GCSE. If you complete with foundations of ACCA successfully you get exempted with the first level of ACCA and then join with the 2nd level of ACCA.
    If you have A-Levels you join with the first level and once after completing it successfully you begin with the second level as well. So, joining with GCSE or A-Level ends up in the same track of progress.:yep:
    I suggest it's better to begin with foundations of ACCA as it's easier to progress when learning for higher levels of ACCA as you will have the basic knowledge of accountancy.
    Check for exemptions go here - http://www.accaglobal.com/content/da...-userguide.pdf

    To apply you have to register online to ACCA website, or as your going to universities approved by ACCA they would do it for you students. If your university isn't approved it's better you have to register online yourself. Or register online yourself and when joining the university make sure you tell them you have registered to ACCA online already. Then everything would be fine. Contact them inquiring about registering at ACCA. Ask them if it's better if you should register online or they would do it.
    Anyways the link to registering online to ACCA and for further information go - http://www.accaglobal.com/gb/en/qual...apply-now.html

    Yes, it is very possible. To be a qualified accountant even accounting degree holders have to take a professional qualification. Instead going straight with this qualification is the best route as you will gain a degree from a high university, Oxford Brookes University. There are plenty of resources to prove it is possible to work for one of the Big 4.

    hey me again, i was reading through some posts to TSR and someone posted this (read below). do you think this is a better option. how do i apply to practices that offer this and where do i find them. Thank you

    "You don't need a degree in accounting, nor do you need a degree in anything for that matter! All you need is a few good A levels showing numerical skills, then you take exams through the ACCA/CIMA/ICAEW. You might do this via a practice, as they fund your training and give you on-the-job experience (provided you don't fail any exams), and then you'll be a fully dledged chartered accountant! Bear in mind, the exams are very tough, but if you don't do a degree, you'll be well ahead of your peers who undertake a degree in accounting; They'll only be exempt from a few exams, but they'll still have to be professionally trained like you. But by all means do the degree if you want the university life, i'm jsut saying that it is not necessary to become a chartered accountant"

    You can find all the relevant details here.
    To be honest you can complete ACCA in just 6 months in your situation.
    You can claim for exemptions from the first 2 levels of ACCA (9 papers which you haven't any need to sit for) because you have a degree in your hand which cuts down the first 9 papers for you.
    You have to just sit for the final level of ACCA, the professional module. You have to take P1,P2 and P3 which is a must and two optional from the rest.
    You could do it part-time and in your case you haven't got to worry about anything as you have gained a degree which exempts you from the first 9 papers.
    You do not have to begin ACCA from the first level. You should be exempted from the first 9 papers.:yep:
    If you have any further queries just let me know.
    You don't get exemptions for just any degree. It will not be a case of the first 9 paper being exempt.

    For exemptions you can look here - http://www.accaglobal.com/content/da..._september.pdf
    You have to do either ACCA/CIMA/ICAEW and gain 3 years experience. Learning ACCA and going to work together gaining the experience is a good choice. They are paying for you while training. You will be a trainee at the practice place. Learning the qualification and working simultaneously makes you qualified faster as you don't have to wait to complete ACCA and after finishing 14 papers to begin the practice. It depends on the individual. Those qualifications are known as professional qualifications and how they differ to a degree is that everything is practical based in the professional qualification. Degree consists of many theory. This is what is explained in the post you have copied here. Yes, it is a good option.

    It's not different as you are thinking it's a different option. It's explained about the practical experience needed to qualify for the professional course. That's why you have thought it to be something different. After all, nothing is different.
    To become an ACCA member affiliate you have to sit 14 papers (this depends on the exemptions you get) , complete professional ethics module and 3 years relevant work experience .

    you'll be well ahead of your peers who undertake a degree in accounting
    Yes, it's true. Even degree holders have to take professional qualification. Instead taking professional qualification enables you to obtain a degree and a professional qualification in the period of taking a degree. Taking a degree and then doing the professional qualifications takes more than 3 years where the professional qualification should be less time and saves it a lot.

    But by all means do the degree if you want the university life, i'm just saying that it is not necessary to become a chartered accountant
    You can learn the professional qualifications at university, too. It doesn't mean if you do professional qualifications you would miss university life at all.

    Thank you for your reply!. what does it mean when a university is approved by ACCA?. Does this mean that BPP is more prestigious and respected among firms as it is ACCA approved as opposed to a regular institution such as LSBF. I also read your previous posts on platinum and gold institutions, what does this mean?. I have also been told by various people that experience is extremely important to become an accountant. How do i go about gaining this experience and can i study for the ACCA qualification at an institution and gain work experience at the same time so quickening the process of becoming an accountant. Thank you, i appreciate your help.

    Hi, i have decided to apply to an ACCA school leavers scheme run by LSBF. Here is a link of the programme.
    http://www.lsbf.org.uk/programmes/pr...l-leavers.html

    I spoke to many of their advisor's and this course appealed to me the most. I was just wondering if LSBF is a trustworthy and reputable institution as i have only recently heard of it?. Also in the application form you are required to provide certified copies of your qualifications such as GCSE and A levels. However i have no certificates for my A levels just my GCSE'S. So should i just send a photocopy of the GCSE certificates?.

    Also if you don't mind me asking where did you do your ACCA?


    Thank you and again i appreciate your help!

    It's not a problem. However finally it's all that you are going to get the ACCA certificates. You have to ensure with the college if the job is guaranteed. You have to ask the students who have done the course. I suggest you to create a thread for this.
    It's no problem. You will join the foundations of accountancy with GCSE and once you complete it you will gain exemption from the first level and will continue with the second level of ACCA. After all, students doing foundation or entering first level directly, ends up in the same track of progress.
    Yes, send in you GCSE certificates and begin the course.
    I live outside EU but, I'd love to help many with the course. My institute follows BPP University.

    Hi, I am now considering applying to the school leavers scheme at BPP instead of LSBF. I have read a lot of bad complaints about LSBF saying that its a poor institution and a scam. There is also a documentary on YouTube exposing LSBF's poor facilities, teaching and how they're taking advantage of overseas students. I heard BPP is more known and popular but am worried they are of similar standards to LSBF. Are these institutions actually even legit like non private universities?. I'm getting swayed as I've read a handful of terrible reviews, mostly targeting LSBF. There is also a article on the guardian about LSBF.

    No, CBE exams are sat with 3 party computer based exam centres. As you are using their facilities to sit the exams they will determine the cost of the exam entry fees. You would need to contact them to arrange time, date and payment of the exam entry fees.

    The ACCA Syllabus is pretty constant Exams posers are sent to &!marked in the uk (I used to be an ACCA marker). There are many ways to study ACCA, I have taught for about 15 years for Kaplan (UK & overseas centres, plus publish the books) & rate them highly. ACCA qualification plus experience is a powerful mix, I've. Used it industry as well as running a practice for nearly 20 years, it's very useful
