Experience is essential
All ACCA students are required to complete their exams, take the Ethics and Professional Skills module and complete the PER (Practical Experience Requirement) before they can become an ACCA member.
It's very important that tuition providers are able to support students in all areas of the ACCA Qualification and not just in the exams.
Students can gain their practical experience before, during or after they complete their exams. The PER provides a structure for them to follow by setting a range of performance objectives. The performance objectives ensure they gain the experience to demonstrate that they have the abilities required to become a member.
The performance objectives are closely linked to the exam syllabus and we recommend that students co-ordinate their study and practical experience achievement to gain the most from both.
