ACCA – FIA Foundations in Accountancy,
The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) awards the Foundation in Accountancy (FIA), which is a highly regarded and recognized initial qualification for anyone interested in a career in accountancy and finance. These awards focus on the core skills of financial and management accounting, which provide students with flexible entry points with certification awarded at each level of the FIA programme, allowing students to tailor the awards, and making them an attractive and relevant choice for employers. The diploma serves as a logical gateway to more advanced specializations such as the Advanced ACCA diploma and the complete ACCA qualification.
On successful completion of the Diploma in Accounting and Business exams, students can automatically be transferred onto the ACCA Qualification, free of charge, and will be exempted from the first three exams of the ACCA Qualification (BT – Business and Technology, MA – Management Accounting, and FA – Financial Accounting).
Students with no formal academic qualifications can register to take exams at any level within Foundations in Accountancy. Full syllabus obtained here Click here to see detailed syllabus of ACCA FIA
It is important to note that exams FAB, FMA and FFA within Foundations in Accountancy are exactly the same as exams F1, F2 and F3 of the ACCA Qualification and share identical syllabuses, study guides and assessment methods. Students who complete F1, F2 and F3 of the ACCA Qualification and Foundations in Professionalism will also be awarded the Diploma in Accounting and Business.
