What is OBU ?
ACCA and Oxford Brookes University have worked together to develop a BSc (Hons) Degree in Applied Accounting, which is available exclusively to ACCA students who wish to obtain a degree while studying towards the ACCA Qualification.
The Covid-19 pandemic means that these are testing and potentially stressful times for students. As a result, Oxford Brookes University has provided further guidance and support for students working on their Research and Analysis project. Our key priority is to ensure the health and safety of students and mentors. Therefore all mentoring, including the presentation to the mentor, must be conducted remotely. Visit the Oxford Brookes University website for further guidance.
Recognising the disruption many students will have experienced, the industry sectors for P40 will also be valid for P41 (November 20) and P42 (May 2021). Visit the Oxford Brookes University website for further information.
Oxford Brookes and ACCA would like to wish you all the best during these difficult times and hope these measures allow students to continue to move ahead with their degree with as minimal disruption as possible.
