Entry requirements and mature student entry route
The minimum entry requirements are two A levels and three GCSEs in five separate subjects, including English and Maths, or equivalent.
Individuals over 21 years who do not meet the minimum entry requirements may register through the Mature Student Entry Route (MSER). This is designed for students who have the maturity and skills to deal with the ACCA Qualification instead of first undertaking the Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) qualification. MSER students must pass the equivalent of Paper F2, Management Accounting and Paper F3, Financial Accounting within two years of registering.
