  • Accreditation

    This programme is governed by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA)

  • Qualification


  • Designation


  • Entrance requirement

    No previous qualifications or experience is needed if your goal is to obtain the Diploma or to move on to the CAT Qualification. All that is required is Grade 12 with a good understanding of English and Mathematics or the completion of the Introductory and/or Intermediate Certificate in Financial and Management Accounting.

    Although no previous qualifications are required it may be beneficial to complete the Introductory and Intermediate Certificate in Financial and Management Accounting programme first.

    If you have qualifications to meet the minimum entry requirements to start your ACCA Qualification, you can achieve the Diploma on the way to gaining your ACCA Qualification.

  • Duration

    This programme can be completed in 6 - 12 months.

  • Courses

    5.     ACCA FIA FAB - Accounting in Business
    6.     ACCA FIA FFA - Financial Accounting
    7.     ACCA FIA FMA - Management Accounting

  • Assessment

    Most courses can be sat on demand, so when you feel ready to sit the exam you can do so at a Computer Based Exam (CBE) centre near you or if you’d prefer to do a paper-based exam you can do so in June and December.

    *As ACCA is a professional accountancy body, it is important for them to ensure all students are aware of how to work and act in a professional and ethical manner. Because of this all students will need to complete Foundations in Professionalism. This can be done online and completed either before or after your exams.

  • Award

    On completion of this programme ACCA will award you with a Diploma in Accounting and Business.

    The Foundations in Professionalism will need to be completed before the Certificate is awarded to you.

SACOB really made it very easy for me! I am a mother of 2 young children and I have a full-time job. So finding time to study towards ICB National Diploma in Financial Accounting is very limited, but everyone at SACOB has always been very understanding and supportive! I am very glad I found them and do not regret studying with SACOB for a moment!!! Thank you all!... read more
