The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is the global professional accounting body offering the Charted Certified Accountant qualification. The ACCA has a network of over 100 offices and centres in over 50 countries.
The ACCA is a globally respected qualification, with over 100 years’ experience as a leading professional accounting body. The qualification is based on international accounting standards and an ACCA qualification indicates professional excellence.
Brookes University and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants
(ACCA) are delighted to congratulate the 911 students that have successfully
passed their Research and Analysis project, and have been awarded a BSc (Hons) in Applied
Accounting. This is an impressive achievement given the students
submitted work in May 2020 as coronavirus disrupted much of everyday life.
BSc (Hons) Applied Accounting is a unique collaboration between Oxford Brookes
and ACCA, offering students the opportunity to gain an undergraduate degree whilst
studying for their professional qualifications. The collaboration has been in
existence for 20 years and this was the 40th cohort of students graduating from
the program. These graduates join over 33,500 alumni from 175 different
pass rate for this submission period increased to 66% of submissions, with
increasing numbers of students achieving higher grades. The External Examiner
commended the quality of the work submitted, recognising that the combination
of the BSc (Hons) Applied Accounting and the ACCA qualification was very
attractive to employers.
BSc (Hons) Applied
Accounting graduates will have access to the recently launched ACCA Careers
Skills Builder, which provides a range of tools to help the graduates make the
most of their ACCA and Oxford Brookes qualifications in the workplace and to
support them to find or change their job.
Jane Towers-Clark, ACCA Head of Academic Partnerships, commented: “ACCA would
like to congratulate the Applied Accounting graduates on achieving their BSc.
To gain their degree from Oxford Brookes University at the same time as
undertaking their professional qualification, and for some students working as
well, shows dedication and determination. The skills they develop along the way
will support their employability and they should be very proud of their
achievement – well done.”
