Course content

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 University of South Wales is an ACCA Platinum Approved Learning Partner, the highest level of accreditation that a tuition provider can obtain. We were also awarded PQ Magazine’s ‘Public Sector Accountancy College of the Year’ in 2016, for the third time.

We offer tuition for all 16 papers of the Professional Qualification (F1 to F9 and P1 to P7) on a part-time basis, and most papers are offered on either a day release or afternoon-evening basis (Cardiff Campus: afternoon-evening only). The course is flexibly designed to allow different study combinations at all levels. Students can study at either Cardiff, Newport or both campuses if they so wish. There are entry points for December, March (only selected papers at Cardiff) and June exams. Our Professional Accounting and Finance course information brochure provides further details on part-time fees, timetables and the next available entry points.
