Impact on the qualification journey

Whether you’re thinking of registering as an ACCA student, are currently studying or you're an affiliate working towards gaining your experience, we want to support you on your journey. Your success is our mission.

Impact on the current qualification journey

There is no immediate impact on the current ACCA Qualification. We’re letting you know now so you can plan ahead. 

The changes will start to be introduced from October 2017 with the introduction of the new Ethics and Professional Skills module. And the first sitting of the redesigned Professional level will be September 2018.

How do these changes impact exam price? 

We publish exam prices seven months in advance. So for the September 2018 exam session – the first sitting of the new Strategic Professional exams – we’ll publish the prices in February 2018. Details will be openly communicated on all of our usual channels.

Impact on ACCA affiliates

There is no impact on affiliates. We recommend you continue to update your practical experience so that you can progress to membership as quickly as possible. You can also take advantage of our many CPD offerings to ensure your skills are completely up to date, making you more attractive to employers.
