Should I study the ACCA full time???

NERDEENERDEE New MemberRegistered Posts: 6
I have been studying the AAT full time for the last year a half and will complete it in June. I now have the option to study for the ACCA but am not sure whether to do this full-time or part-time.

Any advice or suggestions?

    If I were you I would study part time and try and get a job.

    I see so many posts from people who are qualified with no experience and struggle to find a job - seen as overqualified for some jobs and under experienced for others.

    You need 3 years practical experience for membership anyway so you might as well get it along the way rather than trying to do it afterwards.

    Hey blue

    A quick one for you - when you say 3 years experience is it from when you started AAT or can it be like for me 4 years working in practice?

    3 years is for ACCA and as long as you can cover the objectives and you can be signed off by a qualified accountant then it can be your time in practice i.e. before you register with ACCA.
