International students

If you are an international student, you can find out the latest information on UK Visa requirements from the Home Office.

At the University of Westminster we teach the ACCA on a part-time basis, which means students on this course are not eligible to apply for a Tier 4 (student category) visa. If you already have another category of visa, for example a Tier 2 (work) visa, or you are a dependent on someone else's visa, then you may be able to enrol on our ACCA course.

If you are unsure whether your visa will permit you to study on our ACCA course please contact in advance and we will verify whether your visa will allow you to enrol. When you come to enrol on your course you will need to present your passport and visa as evidence of your right to study in the UK.

The University of Westminster is a gold standard approved learning partner for ACCA.
