ACCA 2013 Syllabus
Read this guide as an important summary for those ACCA Students who are currently studying their ACCA professional qualification.
If you are a student facing a retake examination we want to ensure that you are up to date with the recent changes to the syllabus and do not spend valuable time revising topics that are no longer covered in the exam.
Where topics have been added to the syllabus, these changes will be covered appropriately in LSBF material and ACCA courses.
- Overall there is no actual structural change to the syllabus; you will still have to complete all 14 papers, including a choice of 2 out of 4 options.
- There will be the same number of papers at each level, covering the same broad subject matter.
- The examinations will continue to be set twice a year, taking place in June and December, with Computer Based Examination available for the three papers in the Knowledge module.
Please see ACCA Entry Requirements.
Students who are yet to commence studies of any ACCA paper are unaffected.

§To complete the MBA/MA course students must pass 14 ACCA papers (i.e.: F1–P5). Students may be admitted onto the MBA/MA course prior to passing their final three ACCA Papers. SUBSEQUENT TO COMMENCING THE MBA/MA COURSE, SHOULD A STUDENT DISCOVER THAT SHE HAS FAILED ANY ACCA PAPERS, SHE WILL NOT BE ENTITLED TO A REFUND OF ANY AMOUNT PAID. FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, FAILURE OF ANY ACCA PAPERS WILL NOT ENTITLE THE STUDENT TO A REFUND OF ANY AMOUNT. The awarding body for the MBA/MA course will be one of LSBF's partner universities; however, awarding bodies are subject to change from time to time. The School's obligations shall be discharged by providing tuition leading to a recognised MBA/MA award by a recognised awarding body. The School reserves the right to change the awarding body, and will notify the student as soon as reasonably practicable. In light of this, the student agrees that they shall have no claim based on changes to the awarding bodies. The School reserves the right to offer the MBA/MA portion of the dual programme either online or on campus (depending on availability). For the avoidance of doubt, the decision concerning such availability (whether online or on campus) shall be at the sole discretion of the School. The Oracle Capital Group sponsorship programme for the masters' course fees covers the tuition fees only and does not include incidentals such as textbooks and exam entry/assessment fees (£158 per module), dissertation mentoring fees (£250), dissertation submission fees (£250) and final academic board presentation fees (£150), and fees for exemptions and deferrals. Students are responsible for payment of such fees which are mandatory for enrolment and progression on the masters' course.
