Who will issue your certificate?

Once you’ve completed your study with Speciss College and passed the ACCA Fundamentals exams, you’ll be awarded the ACCA Fundamentals Certificate in Accountancy. That’s the first rung of the ladder of ACCA qualifications. The second is the ACCA Professional Certificate in Accountancy.
The Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA), the global body for professional accountants, opens the doors to your success in the financial field.

ACCA has been in business for over 100 years and has a solid reputation for excellence. Your ACCA qualification is one your future employers can trust.

ACCA’s courses are designed to provide you with the accounting knowledge, skills and professional values which will make you a finance professional who is capable of going right to the top.

ACCA courses are based on international accounting standards. With the letters ACCA behind your name, you’ll have the respect of your superiors, colleagues, clients and friends.


Entry requirements for this course

To register for the ACCA Fundamentals course, you need passes in 2 “A” level subjects and 5 “O” level subjects including English Language and Mathematics. Alternatively, you need a pass in the ACCA CAT Advanced qualification.

If you are a mature student with relevant experience, but you don’t have these qualifications, you may be able to do the course at the discretion of ACCA. Please talk to our Business School Director of Studies.

Bring certified copies of your certificates with you when you come to Speciss College to register as a student!
