Advanced Diploma in Accounting and Finance

Overview:

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification is a globally-recognised professional accounting qualification. It is a badge of quality and professionalism, providing you with the core knowledge in all areas of accountancy to ensure that you have the complete skillset required of an accounting and finance professional.

BPP University has strong links with the ACCA and offers a number of programmes to enable you to achieve your professional qualification whilst also enjoying the benefits of a university experience. BPP University’s Advanced Diploma in Accounting and Finance [ACCA route] programme is fully accredited by the ACCA and has been designed to provide you with the core knowledge in the key areas of accountancy to ensure that you have the skills to go on to complete the qualification with ACCA.

This programme has been designed so that the nine modules of the Advanced Diploma each align to one of the nine Fundamentals Level papers (F1 to F9) of the ACCA professional accounting qualification. For each module successfully completed during the course, you will qualify for an exemption for the relevant paper from the ACCA.

So you could leave with a Diploma from BPP University and exam passes in ACCA papers F1 to F9, by exemption, meaning you would be well on the way to becoming a qualified ACCA Professional Accountant and enabling you to progress onto our BSc Professional Accounting (1 year top up), MSc Accounting and Finance or ACCA Professional Level Papers programmes.
