Benefits of obtaining the FIA qualification

Foundations in Accountancy (FIA) is a suite of awards offered by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (the ACCA).

The suite of awards within the FIA consists of certificates, diplomas and a Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) qualification.

These awards focus on the core skills of financial accounting and management accounting together with the wider role of the accountant in business.

If you are a student, you will benefit from flexible entry points to the FIA suite and also have the opportunity to obtain specific awards at the various levels.

The certificates and diplomas will be proof to both current and potential employers of your understanding of certain core business concepts and will also provide you with the opportunity to continue studies towards either the renowned CAT qualification or obtain exemptions from certain papers within the prestigious ACCA qualification.
