The ACCA Qualification is a global qualification that provides the accounting knowledge, skills and professional values relevant to successful careers across all sectors, whether one works in the public or private sectors, practising in accounting firms, or pursuing a career in business. ACCA is the fastest growing Internationally recognised qualification that prepares one to work in any sector they wish.

The length of time it takes to qualify as an ACCA member depends on the learner. One can take a maximum of four exams every six months and combining this with working full-time would also mean that they are simultaneously gaining the practical experience requirement also necessary for membership. On average, an individual registering with the minimum entry requirements, working full-time and studying on a part-time basis would take approximately three to four years to gain their ACCA Qualification.
The programme progresses through three stages: the Knowledge level, the Fundamentals level and finally the Professional level. Learners will need to complete 14 papers in total to qualify. BAC offers most of the ACCA courses that lead to chartered accountancy.
