The best thing about studying the ACCA Qualification is its accessibility. The fact that it can be pursued anywhere in the world makes it an attractive qualification for students. But as there are so many tuition providers around the world, it’s sometimes difficult to judge who you should study with, which is where ACCA’s Approved Learning Partners (ALPs) scheme steps in.
I study with an ACCA Approved Learning Partner in the UAE – and the best part of it is the support that they extend to their students. Topics are explained with clarity, which really helps, not only in relation to approaching exam questions with confidence, but also in terms of applying knowledge to workplace scenarios and so helping us to fulfill our Practical Experience Requirements (PER) objectives. By using examples and posing problems from real life scenarios, our tutors manage to effectively bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application.
Another advantage of studying at my Approved Learning Partner (ALP) is that they keep me on track with my study goals. They advise on what stage of preparation I should be at, by what time. They also create an environment conducive to study by offering good facilities. My ALP has a comprehensive library, classrooms free for when we need a place to study and high quality tuition that helps us understand even difficult areas of the syllabus.
My experience with my ACCA tutors has been really positive. They have helped me pass all my exam papers first time by always giving me extra time and guidance if there is something I don’t understand.
It’s been a great experience interacting with fellow students from similar backgrounds. My classmates have helped me learn from their experiences and I find it really useful to discuss any questions I have from our classes with them. I feel my peers have positively contributed my personal and professional growth.
All in all, I would definitely advise my fellow students to study with an Approved Learning Partner for a quality learning experience. You can search the tuition provider directory on the ACCA website to find one in your country.
