who qualifies to do the Oxford Brookes degree?April 26, 2010 at 2:19 pm
Is the OBU graduation ceremony for Nov 2012 submission on the 21st of June 2013April 26, 2010 at 2:19 pm
Has anyone ever attended the OBU graduation and ceremony or do know anyone who has attended. I would like to know what it entails and the kind of treatment u will recieve there and also if it is worth attendingApril 26, 2010 at 3:19 pm
It’s about an hour or so ceremony, with about 4 speeches. Everyone goes up. It’s recorded if you want a video DVD of the day, professional photographs.
Not sure if you NEED robes? There were 5 out of 400 who didn’t have a robe? But obviously with the robes getting the pics done is nice.
Afterwards they had a reception where we had free wine, orange juice, scones and sandwiches.
It was a good day And now it’s just awaiting the photos!
Let me know if you want to know any more specificsApril 27, 2010 at 4:29 am
HI there, i graduated from the OBU receiving the letter in early April this year.
Do you have any idea on when will i be receiving the official certificate from the Uni itself? As it how long do the Uni take the despatch the certificate out?
Thanks!April 27, 2010 at 8:19 am

I sent my dissertation in March 2009 for the April 2009 deadline.
I was told I passed in July 2009 (no grade)
Was told what I got in August 2009 (also told I’d be invited to a graduation next year).
I think the certificate was Aug/Sep 2009???
My graduation was in April 2010
My graduation was at Oxford Brookes Uni. There were a LOT of international students. Don’t know of any London ones.
I believe there is one ceremony a year, so passing the August deadline is better than the April deadline as you’ve not got to wait a year to graduate!October 10, 2010 at 9:03 am
I wonder if anyone could help me. I found out this month that I passed my Oxford Brookes project (hooray!) and that I will be invited to a graduation ceremony (in London) in due course. I have managed to ascertain that this will be next April, but apparently the actual date will not be available for several more months?! Talk about cutting it fine! I was just wondering if anyone who’s been to a London April graduation could tell me what date it was? And was it a weekday or weekend? I realise it might not be the same next year but at least it would be a starting point!
Many thanks.November 12, 2012 at 12:32 pm

Hi. I got my OBU certificate by mail on 20th Dec 2012. Any idea where & when graduation ceremony will be heldNovember 11, 2013 at 3:40 am
Hi I recently passed The Oxford Brookes RAP and received the Bsc, in Applied accounting,I am considering taking a master degree and most importantly i am planning on having my education assessed to obtain a local education equivalency for employment purposes.My concern is that i was notified OBU does not provide additional transcripts(beside the one i was given with the certificate) to credential evaluation services which is a condition to obtain a degree equivalency and to submit an application for any graduate program in most countries including mine.I would like to know if anyone of you knows anything with regards to obu transcripts, credentials evaluation and i would like to have anyone currently enrolled in a graduate program (except obu master and Acca global Mba) to share his experience with the matter…November 11, 2013 at 1:07 pm
Hi Blakman – I haven’t followed the OBU BSc with a masters but have started an LLB Law Degree with the University of London International Programs. The relevance is that I applied as a graduate student so I would be exempt from 25% of the course which is obviously very welcome.
The university had to satisfy themselves that my OBU degree was valid in terms of the exemption. I attached a couple of the docs from http://business.brookes.ac.uk/undergraduate/2014/acca/ – I think the guide to accreditation and summary of benchmark standards to try and satisfy their requirements.
Ultimately I was accepted and btw – I it had taken me 8 years or something from starting ACCA to completing the degree( I had a big gap in the middle due to the financial crisis). So even with the longer than average degree period – they still considered it satisfactory.
I don’t know if this will help your Masters application – but I would say apply and be confident that this is a sound qualificaiton and that you can supply some general information from that web link if you need to. You have nothing to lose by applying right ?November 12, 2013 at 8:53 am
Just found this which might help:
In that link it describes an Equivalency letter and states:
This letter gives a brief outline of the programme structure. It also states that the course is equivalent to a 3 year undergraduate on-campus course. It confirms that that the award is equivalent to 360 credits (or 180 European Credit Transfer System credits).May 21, 2014 at 1:50 pm
Hi Guys! I read somewhere on here that if you passed your ACCA F4-F9 papers long time ago and your marks have been converted to “conversion pass” on the exam status, then you just get 2:1 degree disregarding what marks you had.
I called ACCA to check this, and ACCA said that OBU still can obtain the pass marks and calculate average to determine degree class. Do you know which one is correct?May 21, 2014 at 6:51 pm
@lana – I think you may have to clarify this with OBU – pity you didn’t raise the issue earlier as the OBU Office will now (and is likely to be for the next few weeks) swamped with submissions and problems with submissions and won’t see this type of query as a priority. I suggest that you contact them about mid June when they may be able to deal with it more promptly. 🙂May 23, 2014 at 9:41 am
Therpena, I guess I’ll find out for sure in September. If I pass that is 🙂May 23, 2014 at 11:09 am
Yes of course @lana you will find out in the fullness of time but I would be curious too in your position 🙂 and as it may help other students in a similar position do contact OBU and let us all know. Imagine it is pretty manic there right now what with the system crash the other day 🙁 and submissions and a public holiday so just wait until the ‘dust settles’ and they will then be able to give you a definitive answer 😀 Good luck with the submission btw 🙂June 9, 2014 at 10:41 am
@iana – Things wil probably be calming down a bit now I imagine in the OBU Admin office after the Period 28 submissions, so if you send them your query now, you are likely to have a reply and answer to your question back fairly quickly.
Do post the answer on the forum so we all know. Thanks 🙂July 10, 2014 at 10:28 pm
I would like to understand how the grading system works for OBU, here are my scores,
F4 – 59
F5 – 69
F6 – 55
F7 – 64
F8 – 62
F9 – 51
I guess the grading starts from F4, also what do I have to score in the project to make a good grade.
The grading is a bit confusing and I am scared that my grade will be very low with the score that I have.
Anyone that knows this should please break it down for me.July 10, 2014 at 10:28 pm
My average marks of papers F4 to F9 are 53%. If I apply for the degree , which grade I achieve? ThanksJuly 10, 2014 at 11:14 pm
If your project gets A or B grade then you will get lower second class degree and if you get C then you will get third class degree.
Thanks.July 11, 2014 at 6:03 pm
How do you calculate the average mark? Can you give me an example? (show me)
