Beginners guide to ACCA

There are a lot of things to consider when you are first starting your research about what accounting course to choose. If you are looking to start at the entry level with no previous knowledge required, the ACCA Diploma in Accounting and Business is perfect for you.   

Here is what you need to do to get started with ACCA Diploma in Accounting and Business:

Touch base with ACCA

Before you commit to any tuition it is always recommended to contact the ACCA directly. This is especially important if you have some previous qualification and you think you may be eligible for exemptions. Contacting ACCA is a great way of finding out what stage you should start at.

Register as an ACCA student

Purchasing your tuition is not the only step on the journey you will have. ACCA will require you to register with them as a student member. (Don’t worry, this is a standard procedure with most accounting bodies). Make sure you will familiarise yourself with ACCA’s registration and membership fees.

If you are planning to dive straight into your studies and do your first exams as soon as possible, you should start your registration with ACCA as early as you can.  ACCA registration may take a few weeks to be processed so please make sure you will have your ACCA student number before planning to book exams.
