About this course
This course enables you to gain a postgraduate qualification while studying towards ACCA exams. On completion you will be presented with a postgraduate diploma or masters in accounting and will have the knowledge and skills necessary to sit the ACCA professional-stage papers.
The course follows the ACCA’s professional syllabus for the three core papers. You will also be required to complete a research methods module to enhance your research skills and complete a research project for the postgraduate diploma route or a dissertation for the masters route.
The University of Brighton is an Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) Gold Approved Learning Provider, which means that we are recognised as providing the highest quality standards in facilities, tuition and course management. ACCA is the world’s largest and fastest growing global professional accountancy body.
ACCA professional examinations are taken separately from the University of Brighton qualification but it is recommended that students take their ACCA exams and diploma/masters exams concurrently.
If you can’t commit to two years part-time or one year full-time, ask about studying the individual ACCA papers with us on a tuition-only basis – we offer this for both the professional core and option papers (subject to demand).
