The ACCA qualification is one of the main routes to becoming a fully qualified accountant. Those who complete this complex qualification demonstrate that they are dedicated to the accounting profession and have the knowledge and skills to match. It will become an invaluable asset to your career.
Throughout the programme you will cover a wide selection of interesting and technically challenging subjects that will stretch you intellectually and will require hard work to fully understand. This course focuses on what the examiners look for from successful candidates, incorporating question based practice to improve your exam technique.
At Derby our class numbers tend to be small, so we are able to provide more personal tuition and discuss the subjects we are covering as a group.
Choose full classes or just revision sessions
If you enrol for each ACCA paper a two day revision course is included in the paper fee.
We also welcome those who wish to pick up just the revision sessions.
