What does ACCA/OBU deem to be proof of English language proficiency?

One of the eligibility requirements for the OBU degree in Applied Accounting is to hold a suitable English language qualification.

Please note that due to the changes in the structure of Paper F4 which will take effect from the December 2014 exam sitting, the June 2014 F4 exam paper will be the last sitting that will meet the required proof of English proficiency for the degree.

Any students who have successfully passed Paper F4 on or before June 2014 will continue to be able to use this as proof of English proficiency.

Any students who take Paper F4 on or after December 2014 will require an alternative proof of English proficiency to meet the entrance requirements of Oxford Brookes University.

The good news is that there are many options available to you. ACCA has put together a list of qualifications which satisfy their English Language Requirements for Oxford Brookes degree. Please note that the OBU will consider other qualifications on request.

There is no change to the administration of eligibility for the programme. Proof of English proficiency will continue to be administered by ACCA.

Students do not need to send in proof of English proficiency to Oxford Brookes University. Ensure you submit your English language certificate to ACCA before passing F7, F8 and F9! (There is a possibility you have submitted it when you registered with ACCA).

If you are still unsure whether or not you are eligible, the best thing to do is to contact the ACCA directly.

    Hello Anna, I passed F4 last year and i hope to submit my OBU RAP next year after passing the remaining Fpapers. Having passed F4 before this new rule, am i still eligible or do i have to write another English test and pass in order to confirm my eligibility? Thanks for your response

    Hi Tope

    As you have passed F4 already, you will not be affected by the new change and will therefore be eligible for the degree once you complete the F level papers.
    Just a note – ensure you have opted in for the degree via myACCA.
