UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 23 JANUARY 2018
Birmingham City Business School has received status as a Platinum Approved Learning Partner once again for its Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) course – the highest level awarded by the Association for its professional accountancy tuition courses.
The ACCA course at Birmingham City University, which is among the most widely recognised and respected courses in the professional field, saw students achieve outstanding results in the most recent term, outperforming the qualification’s global pass rate by a large margin.
The Platinum status is given to a small, select group of successful UK universities, and reflects the Business School’s high-quality tuition and outstanding pass-rate success.
The School’s ACCA course in particular has held the Platinum status continuously for over ten years.
Programme Leader and Associate Professor John Fenner said: “I am delighted that ACCA recognise the world-class teaching and facilities we offer here at Birmingham City Business School by awarding us Platinum status once again."
“We’re lucky enough to have been able to recruit high quality students from across the globe. We have fantastic facilities at our new campus in Curzon Building, and our balance between lectures and practical workshops has contributed to our students’ success. Our students leave here with both technical accounting and strategic business management skills which will maximise their career opportunities in the world of accountancy and finance.”
The ACCA course runs every August and January for one year, with students gaining the qualifications and skills that the accountancy and finance industry readily look for.
