What is exemption accreditation?
Accreditation enables ACCA to award a specific level of exemption to graduates of an educational programme following a full assessment of the programme's regulations, syllabus and assessments.
Benefits of exemption accreditation
Accreditation of your programmes ensures that students registering with ACCA will receive a level of exemption which matches the knowledge and skills gained from their previous qualifications.
Your students will benefit from knowing which module choices will lead to maximum exemption from ACCA's examinations, and will be assured of receiving the appropriate level of exemption immediately upon registration with ACCA.
Becoming an accredited institution
An accredited institution is any institution for which an assessment has been carried out by the accreditation team against one or more of the programmes conducted at that institution.
ACCA can accredit the following types of qualifications for exemption:
- Foundation degrees
- Bachelor degrees
- Postgraduate qualifications

To find out if any programme assessments have been made in respect of your institution, please search ACCA's exemption enquiry database.
