You can study this online programme from anywhere in the world. Each module is studied over 22 weeks. You receive comprehensive learning materials and a choice of tuition options.
We provide you with all of the resources and study materials you need to complete the course successfully, including the essential reading for each module. You can access these through the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) on a range of devices.
Our online learning resources typically include multimedia content, activities and exercises (e.g. multiple choice quizzes, reflective exercises and self-assessment questions), as well as facilities for you to interact with your tutor and fellow students. You'll also receive access to two short introductory modules that help you get the most from your studies.
When you register, we will give you access to your Student Portal. You can then access your University of London email account and other key resources:
All students receive tutor support and feedback while studying this programme. Tutors introduce the modules, respond to queries, monitor discussions and provide guidance on assessments.
- Web-supported learning: if you register for a module as a web-supported learner, you join an online tutor group.
- Institution-supported learning: if you enrol for a module with a local teaching centre, you receive face-to-face tuition. This option is currently available in six countries.
Study at your own pace, either part-time or full-time. You can complete the MSc in as little as six months or take up to five years. Each module is studied over a 22-week session, requiring an average of 10-15 hours per week. Modules run twice per year starting in January and July.
Each module includes a mix of formative and summative assessments. Formative assessments help to measure your progress but do not count towards your grade. Summative assessments do count towards the final grade. They include coursework and a project or written exam. Exams are usually held in June and December.
All elements of assessment for a module must be completed in the same study session.
When will your marks be recognised?
If you sit an exam in December, you can expect to see this reflected on your ACCA transcript in April. In you sit an exam in June, it should be updated by October.
