B.Sc (Hons) in Applied Accountancy is an additional qualification that gives ACCA students an edge over other accounting qualifications. The unique partnership between ACCA and Oxford Brookes University (OBU) gives students an opportunity to gain this degree while they study for their ACCA examinations or after completing ACCA.
Students must apply for registration with OBU for the degree prior to passing ACCA Skill module papers F7, F8 and F9. In addition to this, they will also be required to write and submit a Research and Analysis Project to the University after completing all Skill module examinations. CAMS provides mentoring for the students applying for the degree. The Higher Education Commission (HEC) recognizes the OBU degree as equivalent to a three-year bachelors degree.
To apply for the recognition of the degree to HEC, students must submit college joining and leaving certificates, an attendance certificate (minimum 80% in all ACCA papers), grade report of all ACCA papers and a copy of the B.Sc. degree from OBU.
