The HEC (Higher Education Commission) in Pakistan recognises the Oxford Brookes ACCA BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University as equivalent to a three-year bachelors degree. Students who have met the criteria outlined below will be able to apply to the HEC for recognition of their degree.
To obtain recognition for their degree, students must have:
1. Joining Certificate and Leaving Certificate, both of which have been duly signed and stamped by the Head of the UCRS accredited tuition provider;
2. An attendance report for all qualifying papers, provided by the Customer Services Team of ACCA Pakistan;
3. Grade report of all ACCA papers passed by the student;
4. A copy of the BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting degree certificate from Oxford Brookes University.
An important prerequisite for ALP-registered colleges who operate within the provinces is that they obtain permission from the Provincial Education Department. For further information or contact details of the Provincial Education Department, please contact your local ACCA Pakistan office.
ALP-registered colleges are required to maintain detailed attendance registers to provide students wishing to obtain recognition of their degree with the following evidence.
Student attendance statistics should be submitted to ACCA Pakistan at the end of each term, at the very latest by the first Monday of June and December.
ACCA Pakistan reserves the right to verify these statistics during annual monitoring visits.
In addition to the above information, students are required to obtain a Student Record Verification, which is issued by the Customer Services Team of ACCA Pakistan.
Existing students registered with ACCA before 31 July 2006 and enrolled on the Oxford Brookes degree programme, and ACCA Affiliates who have already completed their Oxford Brookes degree, may also apply for recognition from HEC. Recognition will only be granted by HEC to those who meet the same criteria outlined for new students registering with ACCA from 31 July 2006 and who registered with ACCA after the 13 October 2004.
Student Enrolment Verification – should be issued by the ALP Institution to the student. This must be signed by the Head of the Institution and be printed on the Institution's letter headed paper.
The student must then submit this letter to their local ACCA Pakistan office for verification. Once verified, the student must submit this letter with their grade report for all ACCA papers passed and a copy of the BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting degree certificate to the HEC to obtain equivalence.
If you have any queries regarding the recognition of the BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting, please contact your local ACCA Pakistan office.
