Open Study College launches ACCA and CIMA accredited accountancy courses

Professionals looking to extend their qualifications within the accounting industry will be delighted to hear they are able to do this at their own pace and in their own time, as Open Study College announces the launch of several ACCA and CIMA accredited accountancy courses – a first for the distance learning provider.

The courses are available to any level of student from aspiring assistant accountant or bookkeeper, to seasoned professional looking to build on existing qualifications or getting chartered.

Through the unique e-learning platform, students can tailor and enhance their learning experience through a range of teaching tools such as video tutorials, webinars, tutor support and exam simulations; both on paper and through Computer Based Exam formats.

The decision to extend Open Study College’s course offering follows an increasing demand for accountancy courses, which have already seen over 6,200 students taking up accountancy or bookkeeping qualifications through the site.

“There is a clear appetite for accounting qualifications, with more and more students showing interest in the courses already on offer. We want to be able to support students with a clear route from study to the work place; or when they take the step towards becoming a chartered professional.” said Samantha Rutter, CEO of Open Study College.

“By broadening our existing offering and adding ACCA and CIMA accredited courses we are now able to offer study options in line with the latest thinking, digital skills, working practices, and ethics driven by the industry bodies shaping the profession.”

The courses are available on Open Study College’s website, and learners can choose to commit to one module at a time, a bundle of modules or the whole course. All study options offer full, comprehensive tutor support for learners to study at their own pace from home and online.

The courses can be started at any time throughout the year, with exam options also running throughout the year, giving students full control over their learning schedule.
