Accounting - ACCA

The aim of this full-time day programme is to provide graduates with the opportunity to complete all Professional Level subjects from the ACCA qualification. This will enable them to find roles in either practice or industry and complete the work experience necessary to qualify as an ACCA. The advantage of completing this programme is that graduates will have their ACCA studies completed before they commence work and will not have to try to combine work and study.
