Affiliates

Every year, there are countless success stories from those who use the prestige and expertise that comes with ACCA membership to work in their dream roles, anywhere in the world. Own your world - with ACCA.

This is your journey to ACCA membership

As an ACCA affiliate, your future holds a great deal of promise: 95% of employers in a recent worldwide survey stated that the ACCA qualification was one they respected and admired.  ACCA members can earn significantly higher salaries than ACCA affiliates and they also enjoy the flexibility of being able to work anywhere in the world.  Alongside these unparalleled benefits, there’s the sense of achievement you feel every time you see the ACCA letters next to your name too.

To become an ACCA member, you’ll need to complete:

  • the Practical Experience Requirement (PER)
  • the Ethics and Professional Skills Module (EPSM). 

How you go about this is very much up to you, however we are there for you every step of the way to support you throughout your journey to membership. There’s considerable flexibility and you can complete PER and EPSM at a time that suits you. But be aware that the longer you have ACCA membership on your CV, the more attractive you are to the world’s leading employers.
