Not at all. As you progress through your work experience and studies, you can choose option papers to suit your interest. With the ACCA Qualification, you can work in any area – from audit management to management accounting.

It depends on your situation. Some employers will fund you through all of your training and some will partially fund. Some students fund themselves. 

Yes! Joining us now means you can add ‘ACCA Student’ to your CV and stand out from other candidates while looking for a job. As soon as you register as a student you can start recording your relevant work experience towards your PER (practical experience requirement) and become a professional accountant even faster.

We require that all of our members qualify with three years' relevant work experience. So, depending on how much experience you’ve accrued prior to starting your ACCA studies, the qualification can take anything from two to five (or more) years to complete. As you progress through your studies, you can expect a salary increase, with part-qualified accountants earning upwards of €35,000 per year.

Registration is easy – you can do it at any time of the year and it shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes to submit the correct documents and provide us with everything we need. Make sure you have the following ready:

Proof of your qualifications

(Graduation document and course transcipts). If you’re still studying or awaiting documents, then just provide details of any completed qualifications – you can add transcripts at a later date.

Proof of ID

(Birth certificate, passport or driving licence.) We accept pictures of your documents taken on a phone if you don't have them in PDF format.

To register for exams, you must first register with ACCA and pay your annual subscription fee. After you’ve done this, the best way to enter for exams is to login to your personal myACCA account (you'll be issued a login when you join) where you can select your required papers.

It depends on your current education and how many exemptions you can get. This will range from five to a maximum of 14 exams in total.
