Graduation for ACCA students

ACCA and Oxford Brookes University have worked together to develop a BSc (Hons) Degree in Applied Accounting, which is available exclusively to ACCA students who wish to obtain a degree while studying towards the ACCA qualification.

Once students have completed the degree, they are invited to a regional graduation ceremony based on where they are located. We currently offer graduation ceremonies in Oxford, Dubai and Malaysia.

After the Covid-19 pandemic imposed a halt on the delivery of the international graduation ceremonies, we are very pleased to be able to announce that we are working to restart them in the next academic year. Dates are confirmed as:

  • Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – 21 October 2023 at the Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre - Hotel & Residences
  • Dubai, UAE – date to be confirmed but it will be in 2024

If you are eligible to attend a graduation ceremony, you will receive an email inviting you to your allocated ceremony in due course.

Please do not email the UK Graduation Office to enquire about details. The information will be provided in due course by the ACCA Graduation Office:

Eligibility to attend the Oxford ceremony

Please be aware that it is difficult for us to add a graduate to the UK ceremony, due to limited places and to frequent visa issues.

Places at our UK ceremonies are limited due to the hall capacity and we must keep numbers under strict control so we can allow graduates who currently live in the UK or Europe to attend the ceremony.

We always have a high number of graduates from various countries asking to attend our UK ceremonies but unfortunately the transfer is not possible unless you meet one of the below criteria:

  • a British passport
  • a visa for the UK
  • you have recently studied or worked in the UK
  • you have recently held a UK visa
  • you have relocated in Europe/US/Canada and can provide a proof of address.

You can apply for a transfer by emailing the ACCA Graduation Office ( after you have received your official invite to the allocated ceremony. We will require you to send evidence of the criteria before confirming the transfer.
