Admission/Entry Requirements

We will consider you as an individual and take into account all elements of your application, not just your qualifications. We are looking for breadth and depth in your current studies and enthusiasm for the subject you wish to study. The Foundation Diploma is the best way to prepare for ACCA if you do not have any prior qualification or experience. Post this diploma, you get a free of charge transfer to the ACCA qualification, with exemptions from the first three exams. In Pakistan, the Intermediate Board Committee of Chairmen (IBCC) has awarded HSSC (Intermediate in Commerce) equivalence to the Foundation Diploma. To be eligible for this equivalence, you must apply for the Foundation Diploma after completing O’ Levels or Matriculation.

Contact the Admissions Team for additional guidance on whether the qualifications you currently hold or are taking would be suitable for entry: Admissions open for semesters commencing in January and September of every year. Ensure you allow adequate time for your application to go through the normal admission procedure of two weeks. Visit your nearest campus in time for securing a place in the programme.
