Eligibility for the Oxford Brookes BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting

Qualifying for the degree


Please note we have made a change to the eligibility requirements making it easier to obtain the degree. Oxford Brookes University have just aligned their English Language Proficiency requirements with those of ACCA meaning students no longer need to submit an English language qualification such as IELTS to ACCA for approval. The other eligibility requirements remain in place so please read on for more information.

To be awarded the Oxford Brookes BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting you must:

  • Be registered with Oxford Brookes University ie have opted-in to the BSc degree scheme
  • Pass the Financial Reporting (FR), Audit and Assurance (AA) and Financial Management (FM) exams and complete the other Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills exams by exam or exemption. Please be aware that students are required to successfully complete all nine Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills exams at least two months prior to the start of the submission period in which the student is seeking to submit
  • Complete the ACCA Ethics and Professional Skills module according to the Research and Analysis Project submission dates
  • Complete and pass the Oxford Brookes University Research and Analysis Project.

If you are exempt from any of the Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills exams based on a qualification more than 10 years old, you would be required to forfeit all of the exemptions in order to opt in to the degree programme.

The degree must be completed within 10 years of the earliest date of your first examination pass or the date of your first ACCA exemption being granted otherwise your eligibility will be withdrawn.
