Our ACCA supported Undergraduate programmes

BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting

This programme is an exclusive degree offered to ACCA students to gain a BSc Honours degree in Applied Accounting while they work towards achieving the ACCA qualification. The degree has been jointly designed by Oxford Brookes University and ACCA to meet the requirements of a degree and those of a professional qualification.

Students of ACCA are now automatically registered for the Oxford Brookes University degree when they enrol 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.

BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance

Graduates from this course gain exemptions from first level ACCA exams. Some exemptions from second level ACCA exams are available, including up to the maximum that can be achieved from the ACCA.

The number of exemptions from professional accountancy examinations that undergraduate accounting students can achieve depends on elective modules taken and passed. For ACCA members, papers F1 to F4 are given on the basis of successfully completing the BSc in Accounting and Finance. Additional papers, F5 to F9, are available depending on electives passed.

If an ACCA student has completed Papers F1 to F4 then they can enter the 2nd year of the BSc Accounting and Finance course. If they have completed Papers F5 to F9 then they can enter the course in its final year.

Our ACCA supported Postgraduate programmes

Oxford Brookes Global MBA

Our strategic alliance with the ACCA is a unique relationship. The ACCA co-founded the distance learning MBA with Oxford Brookes more than ten years ago and continues to co-design the online curriculum for the integrated Oxford Brookes Global MBA. ACCA members have access to credit for the Accounting and Finance module and elective modules and, as such, there is an accelerated route for ACCA members, which can be completed entirely through the online learning environment in 21 months.

The alliance between the ACCA and Oxford Brookes University combines the strengths of both institutions to deliver the distance learning MBA across the world. Oxford Brookes University utilises their examination centres in more than 170 countries.
