Before you get started...

You'll need the following to complete your application:
  • Proof of identification such as driver's license, passport or birth certificate.
  • Official translations of any documents not in English, stamped by a licensed translator who is authorised and qualified to provide translation services.
  • If applying to study our ACCA qualification, you will need to upload evidence that you meet our minimum entry requirements.
  • If any matters listed in bye-law8 apply to you (for example if you have received a conviction or caution or been disciplined by another professional or regulatory body), please ensure you complete the Admission and Licencing Committee form. For those residing in Russia, please also complete the data consent form.
  • One of the following payment methods:
    • Visa
    • Mastercard
    • Maestro
    • PayPal
    • Solo
    • UnionPay
    • AliPay
Please note, from the 9th November 2020 we will be removing the ability to pay by AMEX (American Express) credit card. We request that you please use one of our other payment methods to make your payment.
What you need to know:
  • The application process will take around 10 minutes to complete.
  • You will have the opportunity to apply for exemptions during the process.
  • If you apply for exemptions, you need to upload evidence that you are eligible. Our guide to exemptions can help you prepare the correct documents. 
  • We work in partnership with national accountancy bodies in certain countries, so you may also need to register with another local organisation and pay additional charges. Check the list of Joint Examination Schemes to see if this applies to you.

Please note that for students and members based outside of the UK and EU, your information will be transferred and held outside of the region of your residence and may be accessed by our local office in your country of residence. ACCA processes information within the EU, but may also transfer data outside of the EU as part of its operations and service delivery.
