This course is open to European Union (EU) students who wish to study on a part-time basis. It is not available to non-EU students as it does not fulfil UK student Visa requirements.

Birmingham City Business School is an ACCA Platinum Level Tuition Provider. It prepares students for internal examinations in January and May (Fundamentals Knowledge Papers) and external examinations of ACCA in December and June (Fundamentals Skills and Professional Papers).
If you would like to take any ACCA exams in December 2010 then you must ensure you are registered with the ACCA before 15 August 2010. However, if you need to claim exemptions these must be submitted to the ACCA by 31 July. Current AAT students, who will not have received results by this date, are advised to contact the AAT and register with their results release service which sends details to the ACCA automatically as soon as they are available.
The ACCA qualification has become the fastest-growing international accounting qualification and is highly-rated by employers and members worldwide. The qualification is recognised as being challenging, developing expertise and knowledge which are relevant to employers. ACCA is renowned for the ability of its professionals to apply a broad range of strategic skills in the workplace.
If you need any advice or just want to find out more about the course please come along to one of our Open Days, from 12.30pm to 8.00pm on:
- Thursday 21 July 2011
- Wednesday 7 September 2011

You are advised to submit an application form prior to the Open Days, to ensure your details are on the student records system, and it may then be possible to enrol you on the day should you want to do so.
This is a broad-based qualification, focusing on the essential skills of accounting, business and finance. It offers a choice of examinations and work experience competences to allow you and your sponsors to tailor the path of the qualification to suit your needs and aspirations.
The ACCA is recognised as a provider of international qualifications – a reputation which stems from ACCA being the first body to examine in international accounting standards, now increasingly a requirement for financial reporting. Multinational organisations also recognise the value of having accountants and finance professionals trained to consistently high standards in all their operations.
Subjects are specified by the ACCA and attendance comprises lectures and workshops. All potential students are advised to obtain up-to-date information from the ACCA on subjects studied. If you have previous accounting knowledge you may be able to claim exemptions from some of the papers. ACCA will advise your exemption status.
