Foundations in Accountancy (FIA) is offered by ACCA to provide a starting point for those without formal qualification to pursue a career in accountancy. With FIA, you take the first step to achieve ACCA membership and succeed in the Accounting field.Welcome non-degree holdersTo assist those who may not meet the entry requirements to start their studies straight away on the ACCA Qualification, ACCA launches a foundation level award named FIA which allows students without relevant qualification to register for its examination. It targets high-school leavers, students who are new to accounting, and workers who are working in accounts support roles but have no formal qualifications. With low entry requirements, FIA provides great access to ACCA qualification, helping students on their journey towards achieving qualifications of professional level.A well-thought-out articulation pathway for FIA studentsThe major advantages of taking FIA lie in its flexibility and articulation pathway. FIA consists of a suite of awards matching to different job roles and levels, which includes certificates, and diplomas. Students can start, join, and exit at any level in FIA according to their study needs. For example, students with sufficient Accounting knowledge can directly register for Diploma in Accounting and Business. This modular nature allows FIA to tailor an award to fit in students’ study goal. Students are advised to gauge their starting level through a self-check modules system. This system can be accessed from the ACCA website www.accaglobal.com.
It is a matter of discretion for individual employers to recognise any qualification to which this course may lead.
