ACCA Foundations In Accountancy

When considering a career in accountancy it is important to choose the right qualification path.

 

If you choose ACCA, we are here to support you through your studies to help you to achieve your goal of becoming a fully qualified accountant.

 

Our training provision offers the Foundation in Accountancy qualification as part of our drive to develop students, who have no previous accountancy knowledge, to move into a challenging career, and to progress onto the advanced levels within ACCA.

The three levels are summarised on this page with detailed information on each unit available when you click on the unit title.
