ACCA enrolment guidance


Before you apply, please check that you have read and fully understand the relevant information on:

  • Required documents
  • Possible exemptions
  • Payments and fees
  • Important dates

You will be asked about your preferences on these in the online application – and will need to answer them to complete the process.


In order to complete the application you will need to provide the following:

  • proof of any qualifications
  • proof of identity
  • passport-style photograph.

If you choose to apply online and upload your documents, you will need to complete your application by making your payment online.

Please note that each document file size must not exceed 2 MB. A maximum of 20 files may be uploaded. Permitted file types include:

  • Plain text files (TXT format)
  • Microsoft Word (DOC format)
  • Microsoft Excel (XLS format)
  • Images (in BMP, GIF, JPEG or TIFF format)
  • Adobe PDF.


If you already have some qualifications you may not have to take all of the exams in the ACCA Qualification or Foundations in Accountancy awards. These are called exemptions and mean that you will start your studies at the right level for your knowledge and skills.

You should apply for exemptions when you first register as a student with ACCA – you can do this by entering your qualification details during the application process, and our database will confirm any exemptions that may be available to you. You must send official proof of any qualifications you already have or are studying for along with your registration form so that we can assess if you are eligible for exemptions, or send in copies (not originals) along with your registration form if applying by post

When your exemptions have been awarded, you will be issued with an exemption notification and an invoice. You will need to pay an exemption fee for each paper awarded. Exemption fees are charged at the early exam entry fee. Students are charged a one-off fee for each exemption awarded to cover administration costs.

To see our frequently asked questions on exemptions, please follow this link.

Our exemptions calculator details all exemptions that may be available on the basis of qualifications held by students. This includes exemptions awarded to accredited programmes and exemptions awarded using our exemption framework


You can register at any time of the year. The easiest and quickest way to apply is online.

*If experiencing any difficulty with Alipay, please refer to their website for help.


Upon registration, each student must pay both the initial registration fee and the annual subscription fee, if you register to become a student before 9 May. This is because you’re eligible to sit at more than one exam session in a calendar year. Our calendar year runs from January to December.Check with your employer. Many of our students have all or some of their fees paid for by their employers. So it’s worth checking if your employer could cover some or all of your ACCA fees. Remember though, even if your employer pays your fees, the ultimate responsibility for them is yours – so if your employer withdraws their financial support, you’ll have to cover your fees.
