So you've decided to study for the ACCA Qualification.
You can register at any time of the year. The easiest and quickest way to apply is online. You can do this using the ‘Apply now’ links on either the right or left-hand side of this page.
If you can't apply online, you will need to submit a paper application form. Contact ACCA Connect and we’ll send an application form to you. Please click on the ACCA Connect link in the related links to the left-hand side.
You can sit computer-based exams (CBEs) at any time but you need to be a registered student and will have your student registration number.
For more information on CBEs, please click on the link in the related links list on the left-hand side of the page.
If you live in one of the following countries, you can sit exams that qualify you for ACCA and the national accountancy body at the same time: Barbados, Belize, Botswana, Cambodia, Cyprus, Greece, Guyana, Jamaica, Lesotho, Malawi, Malta, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Swaziland, Trinidad and Tobago or Vietnam.
To register with the relevant Joint Examination Scheme partner as well as with ACCA, please apply online or complete a Joint Examination Scheme registration form. You can get this from your local Joint Exam Scheme office.
The following fees apply from 9 November 2013 (and are subject to change without written notice):
Additional fees may apply to register with the relevant Joint Examination Scheme partner - please contact the Joint Exam Scheme partner for details.
*plus unpaid fee(s)
Once you have become an ACCA student and have started studying, the next step will be to register for your exams. Or if you have already decided when you want to start taking exams, you can enter for them at the same time as you apply online to become a student.
Entering for exams online is quick and convenient. You will receive instant confirmation that you have been entered for the exams, saving you valuable time to do more important things - like studying for them!
Please note the following:
If you're still not sure entering for an exam online is the way to go and you complete the paper-based exam entry form, this must be received at ACCA's exams department in the UK by the specified standard closing dates above. Please remember to allow time for postal delivery.
