Questions and answers
Is the BSc still available to me?
Yes. Students across the globe can continue to study towards the BSc at the same time as their ACCA Qualification. We are very proud to continue to offer our students the opportunity to complete a BSc degree awarded by Oxford Brookes University.
Why are you removing the paper numbers on F1 to F9?
We want employers to see, at first sight, exactly the breadth and depth of finance and business expertise you’re gaining – and that's better achieved by using titles that reflect the subject, for example ‘Corporate and Business Law’ instead of ‘F4’.
Can I start recording my practical experience at Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills level?
Yes. You can start recording your PER as soon as you start your ACCA journey and at any level. Think about your practical experience as early as possible while studying and ideally complete it at the same time as exams.
