ACCA operates in 170 countries with 493,500 students and qualified members. The ACCA qualification is recognised nationally and internationally and offers great job prospects. Qualified ACCA members can work in practice, business/ industry, financial services, academia and public sector.

CIT has been awarded Gold Status as part ACCA Approved Learning Partners. Gold status is awarded to tuition providers who have demonstrated that they can meet a range of challenging performance targets set by ACCA.
