On 3 April 2024, students from the BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance programme attended a briefing session on the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) Accelerate programme.

Ryan Ng Zhen Dung, Business Relationship Manager of ACCA, explained that the programme offers the students with a direct pathway to earning their ACCA qualifications at a discounted cost. Year 3 students who are nearing completion of their studies will receive a reduced registration fee of £89, while students in earlier years were also eligible for significant financial benefits.

Students will benefit from discounted prices on exempted modules, paying just £25 per module instead of the usual £86 or £114, depending on the module level. Additionally, they will receive a subscription fee waiver of £134 until they completed their studies. Exemption fees will also be delayed for one year after students finished their studies, helping them manage their financial commitments more effectively.

By attending a briefing session on the ACCA Accelerate programme, these students took a proactive step toward advancing their accounting and finance careers. This opportunity not only recognised their academic efforts but will also support them in achieving their professional goals with less financial strain.
