    your chartered status will only exist in the uk (depending on what exam you sit) look at the country's individual exam requirements....it may well be some of your exam will count towards the other countrys status ...but there will be exams

    Is it recommendable?
    I might not live in the UK after my degrees.

    I know, but with a degree I will get exempted from the other 8.
    Which accounting qualification are you looking at?

    Good luck with that! I did a pure Accountancy degree and there are none that get you to the top levels of the CIMA or ACCA. You'll be doing a good few more exams before you get qualified.

    ACCA has ten exams to complete, it's unlikely you'll get eight exemptions.
    CIMA has nine plus the case study, highly unlikely you'll get seven/eight exemptions.
    For both you also need at least three years experience - and it'll probably take you that long to do the exams.

    If you want to work in accounting, study doesn't stop at your degree.



    Anyway, some qualifications are international, like the two I mentioned above. You would have to look at the accounting regulations of a certain country to work out whether you could practice there, or it might be on the CIMA/ACCA website.
