Foundation level

Do you have 3 GCSES and 2 A Levels (or equivalent qualifications) including maths and English? Then you can start at the ACCA Qualification. So visit the ACCA Qualification page to start your journey with us.

Don’t worry if you don’t have those entry requirements – you can still study with ACCA. You can start your journey towards ACCA membership with our Foundation-level qualifications - referred to collectively as 'Foundations in Accountancy'. They are the perfect place to start if you are new to accountancy or if you’re already working in finance but have no qualifications. You'll be starting at the right level to suit your ability.

You can achieve certificates and diplomas along the way before progressing onto the ACCA Qualification. So you'll have proof of your hard work, plus it's a great way to keep motivated.

Are you based in Bangladesh or Pakistan?

Are you thinking of starting at the Foundation level and based in Bangladesh or Pakistan? Start with ACCA's Foundation Diploma and then transfer to the ACCA Qualification.

Do I need any qualifications to start?

There are no minimum entry requirements - you can start at any level. However, we strongly recommend you start at the ACCA Diploma in Financial and Management Accounting (RQF Level 2) if you have no formal qualifications, especially if it has been a while since you completed any studies.

This is because students who start at the ACCA Diploma in Financial and Management Accounting (RQF Level 2) and work their way through the Foundation level-qualifications perform better in the higher level exams.
