Awarding Body

MQRIC Accredited

The National Commission for Further and Higher Education (NCFHE) deems this Diploma to be at Level 6 in the Malta Qualifications Framework and the European Qualifications Framework for lifelong learning.

Entry Criteria

Learners should have a background in Accounts/Business Studies and be fluent in written and spoken English.

Mode of Assessment

Candidates need to successfully complete a series of examinations.

Course Outline

Individuals who successfully achieve the TQUK Diploma in Professional Accountancy are exempted from 9 ACCA Fundamental-level exams (students who opt for the Maltese Warrant must forfeit 2 of these exemptions (Law and Tax) to sit for the ACCA exams instead).  
Gain an MQF Level 6 TQUK Diploma in Professional Accountancy and the ACCA Fundamentals Qualification in just 18 months!

Once completed, this qualification gives students the eligibility to sit for ACCA's Professional papers and earn a full Level 7 ACCA Professional Qualification allowing them to become warranted accountants.

Who is it for?

This challenging but rewarding programme is ideal for those who wish to build a career in the accounting and finance sector and progress to complete the ACCA Professional-level exams or those who simply wish to have a qualification in accounts.
How does this vary from the ACCA route?

The course is not limited by the exam periods that ACCA exams fall into as examination sessions take place at the end of each paper. 

Does the ACCA accelerate route prepare students to the same level as other ACCA programmes? 

Most definitely. The ACCA Accelerated programme is a more intense route for students and cover the similar hours of tuition to ACCA students. The end qualification is the same, with students completing the 9 fundamentals papers, 7 of which are received through exemptions. Students must sit for ACCA's Taxation and Corporate and Business Law papers in order to make them eligible for a Maltese Accountancy Warrant which students will not need exemptions for.

Are the exams easier?

No. Exams sat through TQUK's Diploma in Accountancy at our Academy are of the same quality and standard as that of other ACCA exams. Our delivery and assessment for ACCA content needs to be up to 80% similar to all other ACCA exams in order for students to receive ACCA exemptions.

We have gone through a stringent assessment process with ACCA. We value the integrity of the accountancy profession and want to be sure that our students leave with the same value.

How do the ACCA exemptions work?

Once students successfully complete the diploma, students will be exempted from 7 ACCA foundation level exams and can move towards the ACCA professional exams.

What if I fail one of the exams?

Just like any other institution we do hold resits. Resits are planned into the academic year.
