    Hi, I just started my third year of uni and I got a question regarding ACCA. I know I want to go down the route of joining ACCA once I’m done with education and when I graduate next year I'm going to do an MSc which I'm sticking to so I still got another year ahead of me.

    So I was wondering when do I register for ACCA, do I register now? Or sometime during my MSc next year or do I register once I found an ACCA graduate training contract?

    I’m still new to this so any help will be grateful, also if anyone can help me regarding when to start looking for ACCA graduate training contracts and how to go about looking for one then that would be great.


    Just register before you're about to sit exams. No point registering a year or more in advance because you'll just be paying membership fees for nothing.

    So if your first sitting will be in December then you need to register before 15th August prior to the December sitting you wish to sit. Not sure of the date you need to register by if you're going to sit an exam in June first though.

    it may be advisblae to seek employment after your masters as they are on similar level ACCA and masters,

    infact you get exemptions from a masters with ACCA

    but as above i woudl probably seek employment after a masters
