ACCA qualifications are among the most widely recognised and respected in business. It will demonstrate to employers you have the relevant financial skills and knowledge. 

You won't get a certificate for just completing the course because ACCA-X is developed by ACCA, there is a standard way of achieving our qualifications. You will need to do the following:

  • Register with ACCA as a student - choose the 'Foundations in Accountancy suite of qualifications' when you start your application. 
  • Take and pass the related ACCA's computer-based exams.
  • Complete an online and interactive module on the 'Foundations in Professionalism' which helps you understand what it means to be a professional and to act ethically at work.

Before you apply to be an ACCA student please check the ACCA registration, subscription and exam entry fees in your country.

Here is a list of the ACCA qualifications you can work towards by studying with ACCA-X online courses to prepare for exams:
