ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

Flexible study

After you have registered with us as a student, you will need to think about how you want to study. There are lots of different ways, so you need to decide which method is right for you. ACCA offers you flexibility, so you can study full-time, or work full-time studying part-time around your job – from anywhere in the world. You can also choose how frequently you sit your exams and how many you take at one time.

Study options include:

  • full-time courses
  • part-time day or evening courses
  • online/e-learning
  • weekend courses
  • revision courses

You can self-study ACCA, but we strongly recommend that you study with one of our Approved Learning Partners for student tuition to guarantee a quality learning experience.

Before you decide on which study method is right for you, watch our video. There are real benefits to studying for your exams with an Approved Learning Partner. But don't take our word for it, lots of students have said the same thing.
