FAQs about our ACCA Qualifications

You can register online to become an ACCA student at any time of the year. Applying online allows you to upload all your supporting documents. This means your ACCA application will be processed much quicker and you will know at which level you can start your studies shortly after submitting your application. Prospen Africa can also assist you in completing your online application while you do it to ensure all goes swiftly, but we cannot do it on your behalf without you present

An initial registration fee is payable when you first register as an ACCA Student.

A subscription fee is charged in addition to the initial registration fee in your first year as an ACCA student if you are eligible to sit at three or more exam sessions in a calendar year.

New students will be charged a subscription fee in addition to their initial registration fee.

Thereafter the annual subscription fee is due and payable on or before 1 January each year you wish to remain an active student.

You will need to supply the following:

  1. Documents supporting your educational achievements.

Your educational documents must:

  • name your qualification(s)
  • be signed and stamped by the awarding institution/body (including logo)
  • include transcripts/marksheets detailing the subjects/module codes and the marks achieved

The qualification can be completed at your OWN pace according to your own available time. The courses and exams can all be taken at a pace you are comfortable with.

The only stringent requirements with regards to time, are the SEVEN-YEAR RULE for the Strategic Level.

The rule means you have seven years to complete Strategic Professional once you pass your first Strategic Professional exam. If you don’t pass all the Strategic Professional exams and reach affiliate status within seven years, you’ll lose any Strategic Professional passes achieved after seven years. These will need to be re-taken for you to be able to complete the exams component of the ACCA Qualification.

If you already have some qualifications, you may not have to take all of the exams in the ACCA Qualification or Foundations in Accountancy awards. These are called exemptions and mean that you will start your studies at the right level for your knowledge and skill.  

Our process of awarding exemptions is very rigorous as we need to ensure we are confident that the prior learning matches the skills and knowledge needed for the ACCA Qualification.  This is a continuous process as we make regular updates to our qualification, both in terms of annual syllabus updates and skills tested. 

We award exemption to qualifications offered by educational institutions worldwide. Some examples are:

  • Certificates and diplomas (awarded by recognised institutions)
  • Foundation degrees
  • Bachelor’s degrees
  • Postgraduate qualifications
  • Professional qualifications.

A maximum of nine Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills exams of the ACCA Qualification can be awarded. To preserve the integrity and rigour of the ACCA Qualification and to ensure that all students share a common experience, we do not award any exemptions for Strategic Professional exams(Strategic Level).

Exemptions are also available for the Foundations in Accountancy suite of awards.

No exemptions are awarded from any of the exams of modules examined within ACCA’s suite of post-professional qualifications.

Our Exemptions calculator details all exemptions that may be available on the basis of qualifications held by students. This includes exemptions awarded to accredited programmes and exemptions awarded using our exemption framework.

We have produced a user guide to the Exemptions calculator, which provides a short step-by-step guide to checking what exemptions you may be eligible to claim.

What you need to do to apply for exemptions depends on where you are on your ACCA student journey.

If you’d like a step-by-step guide on how to apply, you can use the ACCA tool on the website to assist.

You will need to pay an exemption fee for each exam awarded
