ACCA Accelerated Work Study Programme

The MQF Level 7 ACCA Work Study Programme is designed to help you develop your understanding of current practice together with specialist analytical skills and knowledge in a range of aspects of financial management and accounting. 

This unique programme offers learners the opportunity to both fast-track their accounting studies as well as apply the skills they learn to the workplace on an apprenticeship basis.

The course is made up of two qualifications — the MQF Level 6 Diploma in Professional Accountancy awarded by TQUK and the MQF Level 7 ACCA Professional Qualification awarded by ACCA. The Diploma in Professional Accountancy only takes a year and a half to complete and students are awarded with nine ACCA exemptions once they successfully complete it. Opting for this route of study means that students get to achieve the ACCA qualification much faster than the traditional route which generally takes students an average of 3 to 5 years to successfully complete.

 Once students achieve the Diploma in Professional Accountancy, they get to move onto the next stage which is compromised of the ACCA Professional Qualification. The ACCA Professional Qualification is made up of four papers and takes a year to complete. Students who successfully complete all ACCA Professional Papers will earn the full ACCA Qualification which allows them to become warranted accountants. This qualification is currently the only one of its kind worldwide and is an excellent chance for students to obtain knowledge in the classroom, gain skills in the training room and become competent within the workplace. It specifically aims to:

  • Provide an intensive, academically demanding and applied programme that both critically evaluates and synthesises current academic concepts, theories, and research to address key issues in accounting and finance.
  • Enable students to develop purposefully and refine their own comprehensive ‘toolbox’ of accounting and finance techniques and encouraging them to practice the application of such tools.
  • Equip students with specialist analytical skills and knowledge to take advantage of opportunities and minimise threats within the complex real world environment.
  • Facilitate students in the development of the deeper subject-specific knowledge and skills in applied settings.
  • Setting in place an approach to lifelong learning and the acquisition of skills which will enable you to apply a structured and reflective approach to both personal development and contribution to society.
  • Develop students’ problem-solving and decision-making skills and judgment in the field of accounting and finance.
