Foundation in Accountancy ACCA FIA


[MOHE Approval Code: (N/344/3/0519)(12/25)(MQA/FA14212)]

Are you a SPM or IGCSE school leaver? Are you looking for the fastest & most cost-effective pathway to be a Chartered Accountant? 

If both answers are “yes”, look no further, choose the ACCA FIA. This Foundation in Accountancy is designed by ACCA - which is one of the world’s largest & most recognised global professional bodies. 

The ACCA FIA is ‘super fast’. Not only does it take 1 year to complete, it also gives you exemption from 3 ACCA papers. This gives ACCA FIA an advantage over other university foundations. 

Moreover, while studying ACCA FIA, you can earn additional qualifications from ACCA (e.g. ACCA Diploma, etc.) by completing an online course. Find out more about these extra qualifications here. 

This is why ACCA FIA is an unbeatable choice for those who wants to pursue ACCA.

i. Demonstrate knowledge and comprehension in the field of study.
ii. Apply and put into practice the general theories, concepts & techniques with minimal supervision.
iii. Function independently as an individual, or be an effective team player
iv. Communicate effectively in both oral and written forms.
v. Apply the latest technology necessary to support study or work.
vi. Analyse data and make evidence-based decision or conclusion.

Students who do not wish to study the entire ACCA FIA programme can also study 1 or 2 subjects under the Micro-credential Scheme. This allows students to save time (e.g. only 3+ months for each subject) and save money. If you study 2 subjects, you can earn the ACCA Diploma in Financial & Management Accounting (Level 3). The entry requirement for this scheme is also lower; i.e. a pass in SPM.
