Fast-track to the ACCA Qualification

The Foundation level is the best preparation for the ACCA Qualification if you don’t have any other qualifications or experience. So if your ultimate goal is the ACCA Qualification, then starting with the Foundation Diploma will give you essential knowledge to help you pass. You will be automatically transferred onto the ACCA Qualification, free of charge, and given exemptions from the first three exams when you complete the Foundation Diploma.

Starting out at the right level

You could start the Foundation Diploma after completing O’ Levels, Matriculation or Intermediate if you are based in Pakistan. These qualifications will give you a good basis from which to start your Foundation Diploma studies.

Fast and flexible

With computer-based exams available throughout the year and paper exams twice a year, you could complete the entire Foundation Diploma and be registered as an ACCA students in less than 12 months. And there’s no time limit on completing the exams so you really can fit studying around your work and personal life.


You pay for your exams fees and tuition at each level as you go along, so there are no big upfront costs. The Foundation Diploma is a lower cost alternative to studying at University, and you can study and work at the same time. You will be transferred free of charge onto the ACCA Qualification once you’ve completed it, with free exemptions for F1, F2 and F3.

The new ACCA Foundation Diploma consists of seven exams and the Foundations in Professionalism online module:

  • FA1 – Recording Financial Transactions

  • MA1 – Management Information

  • FA2 – Maintaining Financial Records

  • MA2 – Managing Costs and Finance

  • FAB – Accountant in Business

  • FMA – Managment Acounting

  • FFA – Financial Accounting


To gain the Foundation Diploma and be eligible for the ACCA Qualification you must pass all seven exams and complete the Foundations in Professionalism online module. The knowledge gained by completing FA1 and MA1, then FA2 and MA2 will give you the essential knowledge you need to pass FABFMA and FFA. Therefore, ACCA strongly recommends students take FA1 and MA1 before moving onto FA2 and MA2, and finally to FAB, FMA and FFA. Having the right building blocks in place will ensure you have every chance of success in the Foundation Diploma and in at the ACCA Qualification, if you choose to continue your studies.

Once you have completed the Foundation Diploma, you will be automatically transferred to the ACCA Qualification and given exemption from the first three exams (F1, F2 and F3)

Transferring to the ACCA Qualification after Foundation level

If you started your journey with us at Foundation level and want automatic transfer to the ACCA Qualification after you have completed your final foundation-level exam - FAB Accountant in Business, FMA Management Accounting or FFA Financial Accounting - you must ensure that you did not opt OUT of transferring onto the ACCA Qualification, when you completed your application form.
Please note: if you ticked the box to opt OUT on your application form then decide to transfer to the ACCA Qualification after your final foundation-level exam, you will have to pay a fee to transfer.

Practical experience requirements
ACCA is introducing greater articulation between the practical experience required for CAT and the ACCA Qualification. The one year practical experience required for CAT will continue to count towards the three year requirement for the ACCA Qualification. In addition, the two qualifications will share four common performance objectives; act professionally at work; manage self; communicate effectively; and use information and communications technology. If these are completed as part of achieving the CAT Qualification, then they can count towards four of the 13 performance objectives required to achieve the ACCA Qualification.

Advanced Diploma in Accounting and Business

To ensure greater articulation between the Foundation-level suite of awards and the ACCA Qualification, ACCA is also introducing an Advanced Diploma in Accounting and Business which will form part of the ACCA Qualification.

The Advanced Diploma in Accounting and Business will be awarded when students have completed, or are exempt from, the Fundamentals level exams of the ACCA Qualification. Students will also need to complete the Professional Ethics module in order to receive certification for the award of Advanced Diploma in Accounting and Business. Please note students will need to have taken and passed at least two of the six Skills module papers in order to be eligible to get the Advanced Diploma.
