Please note we have made a change to the eligibility requirements to make the programme more accessible. Oxford Brookes University have just aligned their English Language Proficiency requirements with those of ACCA so students no longer need to submit an English language qualification such as IELTS to ACCA for approval. Oxford Brookes University have also provided an alternative to the 10 year rule.
To be awarded the Oxford Brookes BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting you must:
- Have passed the three ACCA Applied Skills examinations Financial Reporting (was F7), Audit and Assurance (was F8) and Financial Management (was F9).
- Have passed, or gained exemption from, the other six papers at the Knowledge Level and Skills Level. Conditional exemptions are not acceptable.
- Have completed the ACCA Ethics and Professional Skills module (or the previous Professional Ethics module)
- Be up-to-date with the payment of your ACCA subscription fees.
- Demonstrate currency of knowledge by either
- passing your RAP within 10 years of the earliest of: the date of your first ACCA examination pass, or the date of your first ACCA exemption being granted.
- passing 3 ACCA (Applied Skills or Strategic Professional) examinations in the 5 year period before submitting and passing your RAP.
- being a full member of ACCA of good standing, over 1 year of ACCA
Membership (CPD and fees must be up to date).
If you're a student and hold exemptions for ACCA Applied Skills examinations Financial Reporting (was F7), Audit and Assurance (was F8) and Financial Management (was F9) then you can forfeit these in order to be eligible for the BSc. Once you have forfeited your exemption you cannot reverse this decision. If you wish to do this please contact ACCA.
If you're a member who gained exemptions from Financial Reporting (was F7), Audit and Assurance (was F8) and Financial Management (was F9) then you're not eligible for the BSc Applied Accounting.
For members, OBU will check your membership record with ACCA to confirm that your CPD is up to date. There is no need to provide OBU with confirmation of this.
