About the bursary

There is a bursary fund for students in difficult financial circumstances that covers the submission fee.

You may only apply for a bursary if this is your first RAP submission.  

Students awarded bursaries have demonstrated a strong academic performance by achieving first time passes in their ACCA exams and with an average of over 65%.

Bursaries are awarded to those who have not completed their ACCA journey.
