Information about technical requirements

Our platform does not require any additional software. However, it is advisable that students have Microsoft Office installed on their computers as tutors may provide additional downloadable notes in Doc, Xlsx, PPT, and PDF formats.

Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Safari (Macintosh only) are all supported by Canvas.

Canvas has been carefully crafted to accommodate low-bandwidth environments. A minimum internet speed of 512kbps is recommended.

Information about when access to materials opens and closes

Access to all learning materials and live sessions opens in the month of intake and closes three months later. For example, if teaching starts in mid-June, access will stop in mid-September after the exams finish.

Learning materials consist of the following:

  • Live tuition and revision sessions
  • Recorded live tuition and revision sessions
  • Study manuals, question banks, class, and revision notes
  • Other relevant materials tutors may provide

Available resources for enrolled students before live tuition begins:

  • Access to recorded live tuition and revision for the session that is currently running
  • Access to study manuals, question banks, class, and revision notes

Students who have purchased a course but have not yet enrolled can request access to a study manuals and or question bank.   


All courses are taught in the evening (BST), Monday through Thursday. Classes typically start at 6:30 p.m. and end at 8:30 p.m., and revision ends at 9 p.m.

We also provide a mentoring hour in the evenings for all students. During mentoring hours, students can have their homework marked and speak to their tutors directly with any concerns.

Normally, there are eight weeks of live online tuition (Some courses have up to 2 extra sessions) and four weeks of live online revision.

For Computer Based Examinations (CBE):

  • Business Technology – 8 weeks
  • Corporate and Business Law – 10 weeks
  • Management and Accounting – 11 weeks
  • Financial Accounting – 12 weeks

Face-to-face revision is offered on two weekends in London. If you cannot attend, you can either join the session live online or watch the recording.

Indicative Timetable

Learning Expectations

We advise that you allocate nine hours of self-study per week in addition to your live classes. For the Strategic Professional exam, we advise 12 hours of self-study.

You will be asked to complete homework in every tuition and revision session, which will be marked with feedback provided during your mentoring hour. You will also be asked to complete a time-limited exam that will also be marked with feedback.

We expect you to attend all live sessions, but if that is not possible (e.g., time zone constraints), we ask that you study using the recorded sessions provided. If you do not attend any sessions, live or recorded, then you may be removed from the course and deferred to the next session.

Information about Practical Experience Requirement (PER)

Studying for your ACCA exams requires you to pass them and gain practical experience that is essential to becoming a fully qualified accountant.

You must take the Ethical and Professional Skills module and gain professional experience by spending 36 months in an accounting or finance-related role.

Exam success, practical experience, and knowledge of ethics will enable you to become a successful accountant.
