Fundamental Level

  • F4 Company Law
  • F5 Performance Management
  • F6 Business Taxation

  • F8 Audit and Assurance
  • F9 Financial Management

Teaching contact hours

For each paper studied students will attend a 3 hour weekly session for 12 weeks. In addition to the classroom attendance students are required to complete an additional 3-6 hours of personal study per week. At the end of the 12 week programme there is a 2 day revision course to practice exam standard questions

The ACCA rules prevent students from sitting more than four papers per sitting. Most students sit between one and three papers per sitting depending on work commitments. In deciding on how many papers to study students must ensure that they have sufficient time to complete the personal study part of the course in addition to classroom attendance.
