The costs will be mentoring fees (which depends on what the individual mentor charges) + submission fee which will probably be somewhere between GBP 250 – 275 for Period 35.
It is often better to invest in a decent mentor as if you fail you will have to pay another submission fee and a resubmission can involve extra stress (particularly if it goes to the wire of a 3rd and final attempt – not only 3 attempts are allowed). However ensure the mentor does not provide templates as this can end up with a referral to the Academic Conduct Office for malpractice or misconduct as all work must be your own (and this could mean a penalty resubmission fee of GBP 550 and notification of this to ACCA)
Ok thanks trephena. But what is the range of amount that the mentor will accept from you?
Secondary how do I apply to the degree is it through ACCA or OBU
Again I stay in Nigeria, hope I can complete both my ACCA and a Degree in Applied Accounting from OBU without coming to UK?
No need to come to the UK. Mentors communicate via emails and have meetings using Skype
Mentoring Costs very from about USD 100 to GBP 500
Please bear in mind my comments above about avoiding using an unscrupulous mentor who will offer to make life easy for you by providing templates (they will call them ‘samples’) to work from. This could be both costly financially and professionally if you do. OBU has recently even withdrawn degrees previously awarded and the students expelled from the programme. The students now face ACCA disciplinary hearings.
Can I go for registered mentors from Interactive
