Before purchasing the best shoes, you need to know your intention in wearing them. Are you wearing it for casual, any occasion or a meeting? The same question needs to be asked before you apply to any preferred course. 

“I need to apply this to change my career.”

“If I apply to this course, my boss will promote me to a better position.”

Quite a number of students, workers and freelancers have doubt in choosing between these two well-known courses - Accounting degree vs Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). Some would like to change into a new environment from an accountant to a chartered accountant. However, please consider the followings; 

If you want a promotion, you probably know your long-term goal.

You should follow these steps:

  • Take a look at the gaps between your current knowledge and where you want to be.
  • Talk to your boss about which courses are relevant and could help you advance in your career.
  • Are there any necessary requirements for the career you want to pursue?

You may not know what to explore for a new career.

You should follow these steps:

  • Find out what you're already good at and what you've done.
  • You should write down a list of five to six subject areas that interest you.

The prompt phase is deciding which course will usher you to the career you plan for. Students and workers who plan to further their studies will be in dilemma to choosing the best one. For instance, an Accounting degree is a university-awarded academic degree, whereas the ACCA is a professional accounting qualification conferred by an international body. Academic degrees are not called ‘ACCA’ for no reason. Takers can complete their ACCA after they graduate with their degree, but they are not allowed to do it the other way around unless there are no other options. 

Questions were thrown to some education advisors when the students are on the fence about which one is easier and which one is more difficult? An accounting degree is easier than ACCA because the level of difficulty rises slowly over the 3 years of study. Also, a degree in accounting isn't just a bunch of tests on paper; there are also grades for assignments and presentations. Unlike ACCA, the course is entirely paper-based as the subject material becomes exponentially difficult as an individual progresses from one to the other. 

Everyone requires more time to concentrate when the subjects/courses are challenging. How about the people who are currently employed? Chill out, relax and have an open mind! Do you know that you can be a part-time student for ACCA? The time for classes is flexible and it will not interrupt your working hours. Choosing to go for full-time or part-time courses will assist your initial intention.
