ACCA course structure


PwC’s Academy employs the latest teaching techniques that are proven to improve learning skills, increase enjoyment whilst you study and allow you to perform to the highest level even in the most challenging topics. Our tuition sessions are highly interactive and we encourage group discussion to help break down complicated concepts. Our tuition sessions are typically divided into 2 phases with a progress test at the end of each phase.

Focus Tuition – March sitting only

The Focus tuition has been introduced to help you study smart and get up to speed with your ACCA prep for the March sitting. Newly introduced in the Middle East, this course will help you prepare strategically for the examinable topics by reviewing key concepts, refreshing your knowledge and focusing on important topics that are likely to be tested in the exam. In addition, you will be taught exam techniques to give you the added advantage to pass the exam.


Our revision sessions are made up of 3 or 4 day blocks, mostly over the weekend. They focus heavily on a detailed analysis of the upcoming exams and guidance on how to approach each type of question. The sessions also include a detailed discussion on allocation of marks and understanding the examiner’s requirements.

Question Based Revision Day

Students are asked to solve questions under exam conditions. This is marked and returned to students with a complete debrief on the examiner’s expectations, model answers, and tips to pass the exam.

ACCA and Oxford Brookes University have worked together to develop a BSc (Hons) Degree in Applied Accounting, which is available exclusively to ACCA students who wish to obtain a degree while studying towards the ACCA qualification.
