    A degree isn't as important as it used to be - a number of people go straight onto ACCA and straight into the world of work

    However Oxford Brookes isn't a very highly ranked university - if you can get into a better one and would like to have a degree then it may be worth going for a BA/BSc

    I don't think an undergraduate degree changes the time need for doing an MBA you would need to check with the relevant institution though

    We can't tell you if MBA time will be reduced - you will need to check with the relevant institution that you plan to do MBA with

    As you are doing CAT, continuing onto ACCA would be a good idea - unless for some reason you specifically want to have a degree

    The BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting degree is a joint degree programme offered in conjunction with ACCA.

    Once students have completed Papers F1-F9 and the ACCA Professional Ethics Module, they become eligible to submit a Research and Analysis Project to Oxford Brookes University. Providing this project is successful, they are then awarded the BSc degree.

    As it is a partnership programme, the degree is made up of the Fundamental Exams, as well as the Research and Analysis Project. The degree aims to enhance and extend knowledge and skills gained by ACCA students in their ACCA studies and so to improve student’s effectiveness as professional accountancy students and/or practitioners.

    Students after obtaining the BSc in Applied Accounting can go on (subject to conditions) to undertake the Global MBA.
