The entry requirements listed here are our typical offer for this course if you wish to begin studying with us in 2018. They should be used as a general guide.
We operate a flexible admissions policy – this means that you could receive a lower conditional offer than the typical offer, informed by our assessment of your complementary non-academic achievements and experiences. For courses that require interview or portfolio review, this may also be considered in the level of any conditional offer that follows if your application is successful.
You will need to provide documentary evidence from the ACCA that you have passed/gained exemptions from all nine papers from the Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills stages (formerly papers F1-F9). The University of Brighton run a Diploma in Professional Studies in Accounting for people who need to complete the Applied Skills stage papers (formerly papers F4–F9).
If you are already fully ACCA qualified (completed all ACCA papers) and are a UK/EU student contact us ( firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss direct entry to the final stage of the MSc.
For non-native speakers of English
If English is not your first language, you will need English language proficiency equivalent to IELTS minimum 6.5 overall with 6.5 in the written test and a minimum of 5.5 in the other elements.
ACCA student membership
You need to be a current registered student of the ACCA. It is advisable to apply for membership as soon as possible, since the process of obtaining membership takes much longer between September and December. Membership brings a number of advantages, including a subscription to Student Accountant magazine and practical online support.
