Celebrating BSc success

The opportunity to complete the BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting will close in May 2026.

What happens if I have passed?

You will receive a certificate, normally within three months of the results letter and you will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony to celebrate your achievement. Students can also request for a copy of their transcript.

Graduation ceremonies

An Oxford Brookes University graduation ceremony is both a public recognition of academic awards, and a celebration of the individual's and the University's achievements. The ceremony is presided over by the Vice Chancellor or their representative from Oxford Brookes University and will be attended by ACCA staff and VIP guests.

You will be invited to a graduation ceremony for the BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting which will take place at either Oxford Brookes University in Oxford or at a regional centre near you - currently offered in Dubai or Malaysia. A reception is held after the ceremony to which all graduates and guests are invited.

This is a very special day for students and their families and Oxford Brookes University and the ACCA look forward to celebrating your academic achievements.

  • Matthew Sykes memorial prize - £150 for best Research and Analysis project in session
  • Simon Williams prize - £150 for best Research and Analysis project in session.
