ACCA accreditation

Note: Please be aware that we are currently in the process of seeking further exemptions  for our degree schemes.  Exemptions for 2016 and the information provided will be updated in due course.

The ACCA qualification currently involves nine ‘Fundamental’ level papers plus three compulsory and two (chosen from four) ‘Professional level papers.

Fundamental Level

Exemptions are offered to Lancaster degrees, as follows:

Graduates from the following programmes receive automatic exemption from the Fundamentals Stage papers as indicated:

F1 - Accountant in Business

N.B.  Lancaster’s recently introduced ‘Industry’ degrees have not yet been formally accredited by ACCA but, given that their academic content is the same as the ‘non-Industry’ variants, we anticipate that ACCA will offer the same exemptions.

 

Professional Stage

ACCA does not currently offer exemptions from any of the exams in the Professional Stage (five papers to be taken in total being three compulsory and two optional).
