Ethics and Professional Skills Module
ACCA student needs complete the Professional Ethics Module before qualifying. This is an online module focuses on developing the complete range of vital skills employers now seek whilst retaining a focus on being an ethical accountant.
Professional ethics is the heart of the ACCA qualification. It is covered in 11 out of 15 exams including all the professional papers. There are no strict rules on when you have to take the Ethics and Professional Skills module, but you must complete it before applying for ACCA membership. The module is open to you after you’ve completed papers F1, F2 and F3.
We normally would recommend you take the Professional Ethics Module at the same time as you study Strategic Professional level – Essentials, or before.
