Different types of tuition

There are two questions to ask yourself before you start studying the ACCA Qualification. How do you like to study? And, most importantly, what’s going to give you the best chance of passing?

Studying online gives you the convenience and flexibility to learn at your own pace and at a time to suit you, but studying face-to-face provides that extra bit of motivation and accountability you need to succeed.

Let’s explore your study options.


Studying for a professional qualification is a big commitment, so face-to-face tuition delivered to a group of fellow students at an Approved Learning Partner’s premises is an excellent way to stay motivated and on track. 

As you learn the syllabus during the course, your chosen provider may teach you one or more of the ACCA exams, helping you practise questions and master exam techniques in preparation for the exam. 

There are a number of options available:

Online learning

Online learning gives you the flexibility to organise your study and complete coursework in your own time and is a great option if you are working full-time or have no access to face-to-face tuition.

You could study completely at your own pace or you could take a ‘live’ classroom option – with online classes scheduled at specific times.

Blended learning

Blended learning courses use a combination of face to face tuition and online learning.  This allows students the opportunity to partly control the time, place and pace of their learning whilst still having an element of face to face interaction with a tutor.
