How to choose a learning provider

Things to consider...

Regardless of whether or not you choose to study with one of ACCA’s Approved Learning Partners, there are a number of factors that ACCA students may wish to take into consideration when choosing a learning provider: 


Is there a choice of ACCA learning providers in your local area? If not, you may want to consider a learning provider who offers a distance learning package. 

Questions and courses offered

Does the learning provider offer a course for the qualification and paper(s) that you are studying for? Will you be able to take subsequent papers with the same learning provider? 

Modes of study offered

Are you looking for a full-time, part-time or revision course? Do you want to attend a learning provider who offers face-to-face tuition, or would a distance learning package be more suited to your needs? 

Variants and adapted exams

Does the learning provider offer tuition for the variant or adapted paper that you are studying for? 

Computer-based exams

If you are studying for any of the Foundation-level, Applied Knowledge or Corporate Business Law (LW) exams of the ACCA Qualification, will you be able to take computer-based exams with the same learning provider?


If you intend to drive to your chosen learning provider, are there car parking facilities available? If you do not have access to a computer or the internet, does the learning provider have computers available for students’ use? Do you require disabled access?
