How it works?
Pathway 1: ACCA Students:
For the purpose of completing your master’s degree, you are granted credits by the University of London for the three ACCA modules that you study to get your ACCA qualification (P1 to P3). The ACCA accepts two of the modules (Strategic Financial Management and Strategic Performance Management) in place of ACCA papers P4 and P5
Pathway 2: ACCA Members
If you are an ACCA member, you have already passed all your professional exams, and you just need to complete two modules and earn the MSc Degree from the University of London.
If your last exam was finished more than five years ago, then you will need to take a preparation course before registration (the price is $49) for Pathway 2.
Preparation Course: The preparation course starts every two weeks and lasts for six weeks. If you have to take a preparatory course, you will have to register by the prescribed registration date.
If you haven’t taken any Professional Level exams, you need to contact ACCA about your eligibility.
