Who is for the ACCA Foundation Diploma?

The ACCA Foundation Diploma is designed for those students who do not have a university bachelor's degree or A-level completed.  In this case, they must first complete seven papers from the ACCA Foundation Diploma and then move on to the ACCA Professional Qualification.

However, to start this qualification, students must have two A-levels and three GCSEs or their equivalent in five separate subjects, including English and math (or equivalent qualifications) or a bachelor's degree from a university.
