Why Upskill for a Career in Chartered Accountancy?

The AdvDip(CPD) ACCA Strategic Professional Level course at the University of Bolton puts students on the path to achieving their chartered accountant status. It’s a flexible course that allows you to complete your professional level qualification in just one year with full-time study, or across the course of two years with part-time study.

It’s a great programme for advancing your skills, and also for kick-starting your career in chartered accountancy. Here are the reasons why achieving this accreditation is extremely beneficial as you navigate the workplace.


Be the best of the best

We are a Gold-status Approved Learning Partner of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), and completing our course means you’ll be eligible to work towards becoming an ACCA chartered accountant. Not only does ACCA membership boost your employability with top companies, but you can increase your earning potential too.

The ACCA accreditation is the gold standard in accountancy and finance, giving you greater earning power across a range of industries. Right now, the average salary of a chartered accountant is £84,500 in the UK, with an average yearly bonus of £17,300 in addition.


Progression and leadership potential

A career in chartered accountancy isn’t just about excellent earnings either. It acts as a great platform for progression, with many people moving into leadership roles, including c-suite level management which is made up of the highest-ranking senior executives in an organisation.

If you want to establish a career path with plenty of opportunities for growth and promotion, our course can help you get there.


Improve your skills while getting great support

An ACCA Strategic Professional Level programme is ideal for those who want to focus their learning and nurture their talent in a supportive environment. Our programme provides up to 10 hours’ specialist tuition per week, and the breadth of training covered can open many doors for graduates.

This structure also means that students have greater levels of contact both with the institute and their lecturers, and as a result will enjoy better exam success.

If you’re interested in upskilling for a brighter future, there’s nowhere better to begin your journey than the University of Bolton. We’re in the Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020), plus the Top 50 UK Universities in The Guardian University League Tables 2021. Furthermore, students have voted us No.2 in the UK for Student Satisfaction in Accountancy & Finance (Complete University Guide in 2021).
