Getting started

If you are new to the ACCA qualification, visit the ACCA website to register as a student and apply for possible exemptions based on your previous education. Exemptions let you start your studies at a level that is consistent with the knowledge and skills gained from prior learning. A maximum of nine exemptions at the Fundamentals level of the ACCA qualification can be awarded. In our experience most students working in the finance profession in the Benelux and Germany may obtain between one and four exemptions. 

Once you have registered and have been awarded exemptions you know what the starting point of your ACCA studies is. The next step is to register for one or more of our classroom courses! Of course, it is always possible to sign up for individual ACCA papers to refresh or increase your knowledge.
