About Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, ACCA - at University of South Wales

The ACCA Professional Qualification, covering all accounting disciplines, can act as a springboard to career success in many different areas of accountancy and finance.

The combination of the practical experience and technical expertise of our lecturing team and our excellence in teaching and learning make USW's ACCA course very special.

USW is an ACCA Platinum Approved Learning Partner, the highest level of accreditation that a tuition provider can obtain. We have been awarded PQ Magazine's 'Public Sector Accountancy College of the Year' three times and were again shortlisted under three categories in 2020. Our students have won numerous awards, including a USW ACCA student achieving top place in the world in her final Strategic Professional Level papers in June 2019.

Tuition includes all the syllabus content, question practice, and revision sessions needed to prepare you for the final ACCA exams.

Our ACCA course is flexibly designed to allow different study combinations at all levels. For the part-time course, there are entry points for December and June exams in September and January respectively. Our Professional Accounting course brochure provides further details. For the full-time course, entry is in September. Our full-time Professional Accounting brochure provides further details.

Please note that whilst this course does not require a DBS Check for entry, some professions will not consider candidates who have certain types of criminal convictions.
