Full-time students are also entitled to attend enrichment courses like the IT literacy classes (for free). These are internationally recognised certification for Advanced Spreadsheet, Advanced Presentation, IT Securities and Online collaboration modules.

Is ACCA recognised in Malaysia? ACCA is an internationally recognised professional qualification, and is growing very rapidly. It has now more than 210,000 members and more than 500,000 students. They are widely recognised by multinational firms or organisations. It is also recognised in the Malaysian public sector, a highly sought-after qualification. Having your ACCA membership means you are able to apply to be a Chartered Accountant under the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA) under the Part II of the First Schedule of the Accountants Act, 1967
Is ACCA considered a degree? ACCA is a professional qualification. By completing up to 9 papers in ACCA, an ACCA student can be conferred a degree from Oxford Brookes University (OBU) UK (BSc in Applied Accounting) by passing the thesis requirements set by both ACCA & OBU. Upon completion of the 13 ACCA papers, many universities provide exemption into the Master’s programme, with some only requiring an ACCA graduate to complete 2 papers for their Masters’ programme. Public accounting firms recognised the OBU Degree as a degree graduate and most large firms encourage or require their employees with accounting degree to pursue their studies to obtain professional qualification like ACCA.
Can I finish ACCA in 2 years? The time required to complete your ACCA shall depend on your entry pathway. If a student is to commence from the first level of ACCA, beginning from the Applied Knowledge papers, it will have a total of 13 papers to complete which require the shortest time of 2.5 years. ACCA FIA students can start ACCA with Applied Skills level and another 4 strategic professional papers. That would only require a minimum duration of 2 years. An accounting degree holder with a full exemption of 9 fundamental papers would only require to complete 4 strategic professional papers with a minimum duration of 1 year. There is no time limit for the Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills levels. The time limit applies to Strategic Professional papers. There is a 10-year time limit for a student to complete its OBU Degree, from the earliest date of your first examination or the date of exemption being granted.

I would strongly encourage ACCA students to join MCKL as I enjoyed the college’s study environment, its lecturers, the affordable course fee, and most of all, my college friends were like a closely knitted family since we were a small and focused group.

I chose MCKL as it is widely recognised as one of the top tuition providers for CAT and ACCA which made me comfortable to undergo both programmes at the college. Despite the challenging nature of my course, my lecturers guided me throughout the journey, and I also did have my share of fun thanks to a great bunch of friends I made in MCKL.

I first completed my F1 paper at a tuition provider and was then moving around different colleges to complete my ACCA studies according to the lecturers’ capability. However, after completing my F6, F7 and F8 in MCKL, I decided to continue my ACCA journey here due to the facilities, environment, and especially the many friends I made.

Before I handed in my admission form to MCKL, I visited many other colleges. While other colleges may have better facilities, I felt something different about MCKL. The way they run the college was not as commercialised and they often put the students’ benefit as their main priority.
