Foundation Diploma

Stepping Ahead towards Lifelong Learning

Whether you wish to start a career in finance, gain recognition for the wealth of skills and experience you have already achieved, or want accelerated progression to the ACCA Professional Scheme and a more senior position in accountancy, ACCA's Foundation Diploma will help you towards your career of choice.

Foundation Diploma consists of a suite of awards, including two certificates and a diploma. It includes 2 certificates and one Diploma i.e. Introductory Certificate in Financial and Management Accounting; Intermediate Certificate in Financial and Management Accounting; and Diploma in Accounting and Business. These awards provide entry to the ACCA Qualification on completion, with exemptions from exams F1-F3.

It is internationally recognized and highly regarded leading to a challenging and rewarding career. FD is designed to equip you with all the necessary technical skills and knowledge required to fulfill an accounting role to technician level.

Should you wish to pursue your career further, completion of the FD exempts you from ACCA Fundamentals Level papers F1, F2 and F3. ACCA’s unique partnership with Oxford Brookes University allows you to obtain a BSc (Hons) degree in Applied Accounting upon completion of Fundamentals Level of the ACCA Professional Scheme examination. Passing the Professional Level examination and gaining three years' relevant practical experience will lead to ACCA membership. Lifelong learning continues beyond membership through our portfolio of continuing professional development opportunities, including a bespoke MBA and a range of additional diplomas and certificates.
