nice to see there is someone like me who is worried about ACCA's acceptancy.
i don't know if my response here will give u the answer u were looking for:
i passed all my ACCA exams, i don't have any university degree (not even the Oxford Brookes one
), i made numerous calls to ACCA Canada & ACCA UK. they both said, ACCA members get considerable points while applying for Canadian immigration; this was not the answer i was looking for as i am not a memeber.
so, i called many consultants (whom i consider pretty useless in helping someone to immigrate) & guess what, one immi. consultants came very helpful even though i was not paying a single penny to them. they told me if it took me 5 years to complete ACCA (which it took me indeed as i was not so bright like my friend who passed ACCA in 3 years)& if i can get the course completion certificate from the college that i studied, i will get 25 points as in UK it takes 5 years (4 years Hons + 1 year Masters) to get the proper university masters degree.
and also don't forget, according to Operations Manual 6, the visa officers are required to exercise their knowledge of local educational qualifications & education to grant points. so, if the visa officer is in UK then should know that in UK ACCA qualification alone by its own merit is reagrded as Masters level qualification.
So, based on the above understandiong I submitted a nice looking cover letter from myself stating why i think i should be granted 25 points for my ACCA qualification & also backed up my statement with ACCA's equivalency letter & of course i had to show that i had 17 year's full time education. so far i have just received medical request from London CHC & don't know how long i will have to wait for PPR or for any developments.
best of luck, my friend.........
Now a days ACCA is providing a letter of equivalence which clearly states that ACCA fully qualified is equivalent to Masters Degree in UK . Can we claim 25 points on the basis of ACCA. Do anyone has claimed 25 points against ACCA Qualification merely on the basis of Equivalency Certificate.
