Course Description

Students who are keen on obtaining a degree while studying towards the ACCA qualification have an option of enrolling in the Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Applied Accounting program, developed by ACCA and Oxford Brookes University (UK).

Completing a degree and a professional accounting qualification boasts a powerful combination of expertise, putting graduates in demand with employers thereby increasing their career prospects.




The Research and Analysis Project (RAP) is the final component of the BSc degree and consists of two separate documents; a 7,500 word Research Report (RR) and a 2,000 word Skills and Learning Statement (SLS). Students are also required to give a presentation on
the project to their project mentor.

For RR, students are required to conduct an investigation and write a report which addresses one of the topics listed by OBU.

SLS is an evaluation of students’ experiences of doing the RR by demonstrating that they have developed the key ‘graduate’ skills of self-reflection and communication.



To pass the RAP, students must pass both the Research Report (RR) and the Skills and Learning Statement (SLS). If students do not pass both components separately within the same RAP submission, they will be awarded a Fail grade for the RAP.

Students will be given one of three Pass grades (A, B or C) or a Fail grade (F) for the performance in the RR.

Students will be given either a Pass grade or a Fail grade for the performance in the SLS.

If students achieve one of the three Pass grades for the RR and the Pass grade for the SLS, then a pass in the RAP will be awarded. The grade awarded to students for the performance in the RAP will be of that awarded to them for the RR i.e. A, B or C. Once they have been awarded one of the three Pass grades for the RAP, then they cannot make any further RAP submissions.

If students are awarded either a Fail grade in the RR or a Fail grade in the SLS, then they will be awarded a Fail grade for the RAP. If they are awarded a Fail grade on the first RAP submission, they will be allowed up to two further RAP submissions.
