Prepare for Your future — Properly

Some students are confused on whether to follow an academic degree with Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education conferred by the University of London or go straight to a qualification by a professional body, such as ACCA.

The answer is clear.

Go the University of London route if you wish to keep your career options open.

ACCA itself offers the opportunity to top up the qualification to a degree at level 6 through Oxford Brookes University over an additional two academic years on top of the ACCA qualification.

You should therefore read for the BSc (Hons) Accounting & Finance, conferred by the University of London under the academic direction of the London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE), taught at Saint Martin’s Institute of Higher Education in Malta, and enjoy exemptions from the Four foundation units and furthermore, attain exemptions from five other ACCA qualifications.

Thus, after successfully completing your honours degree with a proper classification at an undisputed level 6, you may wish to top up by sitting for Taxation and the Professional Level of the ACCA.
