Studying with Eagle

If you want to be seen as a strategic, forward thinking professional accountant, with opportunities all over the world – then this is the qualification for you. Strategic Professional can open doors to the most sought after jobs, and you’ll become part of the largest network of professional accountants in the world.

Keep reading for more information about everything that’s included in the subscription, including details of the syllabus, how to book exams, and the support you get along the way.

What’s included

  • Unlimited access to all ACCA courses across the qualification so you can recap on any assumed knowledge from earlier subjects
  • Tutor led bite-sized videos
  • Kaplan ACCA Approved online study text and exam kits
  • Downloadable integrated workbooks
  • Practice questions
  • Mock exam
  • Access to expert tutors, 7 days a week responding via email within 4 working hours

ACCA registration, student membership and exam fees not included.

This is the final level – you’re nearly there! So in Strategic Professional you’ll learn about the role of accounting in the business environment, and develop the practical skills and techniques required of an accountant.

By doing Strategic Professional, as well as satisfying the practical experience element and completing the Ethics module, you’ll end up getting the world-leading ACCA designation.

You’ll study Strategic Professional via the Distance Learning study method, so you’ll need to be a self-starter who works well on their own. Distance learning is a great option if you want to study at a time and place that suits your lifestyle. Plus, you’ll get extra support from your Eagle mentor, who is there to guide you through the learning process.

  • Entry requirements

    To do ACCA Strategic professional you must have completed the previous two ACCA levels: Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills. Or you may have been awarded exemptions from Applied Knowledge and/or Applied Skills. You should check whether you’re eligible on the ACCA website and apply for any exemptions before you start studying.

  • ACCA Strategic Professional syllabus

    Building on what you already know, Strategic Professional develops your ability to blend technical, ethical and professional skills. And at this point you can choose the areas and topics that best suit your future career plans.

    You will study two compulsory subjects:

    • Strategic Business Leader (SBL)
    • Strategic Business Reporting (SBR)

    And then choose two from these four optional subjects. We advise that you select the subjects with the most relevance to your chosen sector or career path:

    • Advanced Financial Management (AFM)
    • Advanced Performance Management (APM)
    • Advanced Taxation UK (ATX)
    • Advanced Audit and Assurance (AAA)

    You will also have to do the Ethics and Professional Skills module which will give you the skills that employers tell us they need from ACCA students. Ideally you should sit this before doing any of the other exams. You may have already done this at the Applied Skills level, so you don’t need to do it again.

  • How is this course assessed?

    Currently the Strategic Professional exams are paper based, but ACCA are phasing in computer based exams for this level from March 2020. The exams are 100 marks each and take 3 hours and 15 minutes to complete, with the exception of SBL which takes 4 hours. Each exam will have 4 marks for professional skills except for SBL which will have 20 professional skills marks. You will need 50% or more to pass these exams.

  • What support will I get?
    • You’re fully supported with access to expert tutors, 7 days a week responding via email within 4 working hours
    • You’ll also be assigned a mentor to help and guide you through the order of subjects to study in and check that the level you’re starting at is right for you. You can also contact them wherever you need to throughout your course and get a response within 24 hours Monday to Friday
    • For full details on Academic and Mentor support opening hours, please visit the contact us page.

    Partnering with the best, you’ll always have access to market-leading interactive online content powered by Kaplan and ACCA-approved material from Kaplan Publishing hosted by Osborne books – all-day, every day for as long as you subscribe. Eagle students get 50% off hard copy study materials.

  • What could I do next?

    Well the world’s your oyster! When you’ve completed the ACCA Qualification there is a wide range of opportunities to work in senior financial roles anywhere in the world. So it all depends on the area in which you want to specialise. You may become a business analyst, or management accountant, or maybe tax is more your thing. Whatever it is, we’re sure you’re going to go far – with a salary to match!
