Steps to become an ACCA Chartered Accountant
F Papers

Fundamentals Level

The fundamentals level consists of nine compulsory papers split across two modules; The Knowledge Module (F1-F3) and the Skills Module (F4-F9). Depending on your previous education you may qualify for exemptions from some of the papers at this level

Our full-time fundamentals level programmes give you exemptions from these exams. Our part-time courses prepare you to sit these papers with the ACCA.

Professional Level

The professional level consists of three compulsory papers in the Essentials module (P1-P3) and four papers in the Options module (P4-P7) from which you will need to complete two papers.

Both our full-time and part-time professional level courses prepare you to sit these papers with the ACCA.
