ACCA now offers a range of foundation-level qualifications (FIA – Foundation in accountancy) which provide an excellent starting point for those who may wish to pursue a career in accountancy and become a professional accountant but may not meet the entry requirements to start their studies straight away on the ACCA Qualification. The range includes certificates, diplomas and a technician-level qualification (CAT).
ACCA FIA Foundation in Accountancy consists of:
INTRODUCTORY CERTIFICATE IN FINANCIAL AND MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING
INTERMEDIATE CERTIFICATE IN FINANCIAL AND MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING
DIPLOMA IN ACCOUNTING AND BUSINESS
You can access free Course notes and Lectures for the Diploma in Accounting and Business
Students who successfully complete the Diploma in Accounting and Business through Foundations in Accountancy can either:
• transfer to the ACCA Qualification and commence their studies at F4 onwards of the ACCA Qualification
• continue to study for the Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) qualification. On completion of this, they can progress to the ACCA Qualification
if they choose to do so, beginning their studies at paper F4. They can also count the four performance objectives and one year’s work experience gained to achieve the CAT Qualification towards the three years’ work experience required for the ACCA Qualification.
