The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) exams are designed to meet the needs of those aiming for a career in accountancy, enhancing their knowledge, skills and professional competence.

Currently we teach nine of the 14 ACCA exams. We do not offer tuition for the five professional-level exams. The classes are designed to cover all material you need to sit the ACCA exams in either June or December.

Your future

During your study and once you have passed your ACCA exams, you can look forward to excellent career prospects in a wide range of accountancy-based roles, including chief financial officer, partner in an accounting firm, government finance, forensic accountant, finance director, auditor and business advisor.

The people running the course won me instantly from the first contact. I enrolled for three modules of the ACCA course having doubts that it might have been too much. However, all tutors have been very supportive, professional and knowledgeable, and I never had a question not answered. Very modern and technologically equipped facilities in place – from library to classroom to common areas. Very happy with my choice and coming back for next semester. – Marios Banas

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 [email protected]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.
