How will this benefit BTEC Business students?
We’ve agreed with the ACCA that if you complete any of the BTEC L3 Nationals Extended Diploma in Business, you will meet the entry requirements for the ACCA L4 qualification.
Students seeking a career in financial accounting will find the greatest benefit in this, particularly if they choose optional units 10, 11, 12, or 13 as these are most closely linked to accounting.
Claiming your exemptions
Following the completion of your studies, you can register for the Level 4 ACCA qualification.
Once you have registered, send your BTEC transcripts to the ACCA Accreditation team, including your registration number and student name, and they will apply the exemptions to your ACCA ID.
