Is it possible for me to get admission in Stoffville College? I am from Pakistan.
I joined ACCA last year but haven't given any papers yet.. I will have to give the 3 Foundations in Accountancy first. So can i get admission without giving those 3 papers and transferring onto ACCA or should i give those papers and transfer onto ACCA then apply for admission?
And what are the supporting documents mentioned in the application form.
For getting admission as far you have the registration card or ACCA number you can apply in both Stoufville and LSBF.
You have to pay Subscription fee to ACCA which is I guess 72pounds yearly.
It's your own choice weather you give it here or give those papers in Canada.

I am sharing some more Information which may be beneficial for you . .
If, you really want to do ACCA as ACCA is not that much recognize in Canada because they prefer CGA and CA mostly.
CGA and ACCA signed a mutual agreement on the basis of you scratch my back I scratch yours but for that an ACCA or CGA must be member of there accountancy body means have 3years of relevant experience in the field of audit or finance. After, that you can claim CGA membership or ACCA membership.
You, can't apply for CGA directly as Canada High Commission strongly belief that if an applicant is applying for CGA or CA his/her intention is not come back which make some sense as well.
Now, for the college if your intention is to do ACCA from Canada than it's your choice whether you choice LSBF or Stoufville.
LSBF required 50% fees in advance to apply and send you Letter of Accpetance plus give you discount on bulk buying for example 3, 6, 9 or 14papers check on there website.Where else Stoufville required 250CND$ to 400CND$ payment in advance to send you Letter of Acceptance further payment on arrival and as far I know they don't give bulk discount on papers.
But, if you feel that you don't want to continue ACCA your intention is just to reach there and do CGA or CA than, Stouffville is the best option to apply as your not bound to pay them in advance and as soon you land swtich yourself to CGA. As once, you reach there you want be kicked at all .. Wink
Now, the payments:
Per month expense is 1000CND$ x 12 =12,000$CND + 1year Education Fee + 4000CND$ for the save side "Minimum requirement" else it's upto you how much you can show. Furthermore, Canada High Commission accept your own person a/c statement , your father or your relative as well and Loan Letter is also acceptable.
ACCA session start in both colleges in February. If you want to apply in this session do it as soon as possible within this week. As, both the colleges are situated in Ontario and only one applicant received his medical call yet. Next session will be in September 2012 for that you can apply in January onwards.
and one more post . . .
I already told you brother LSBF required 50% fees which means you will be bound with them. They wont return you until and unless no serious refusal comes from High Commission. On the other side, Stouffville required maximum 400$CND too issue you Letter of Acceptance and other 6000$ to 7000$ on arrival and your not bound to give them until and unless your intention is to continue to study with them.
Yes, you can change college to college and university to university and you don't need to explain why your changing to High Commission but if you change to college to university or university to college than you have to write a letter to High Commission.
Furthermore, if your intention is to study CGA check on there website first they required some attested and sealed documents to give you admission and it's better you do it advance else you have to ask someone in Pakistan to send you such documents.
Your ielts is weak but not that much weak but for university level it is. May be university or college ask you do first some English course to cover your studies in future or they ask you to give GMAT or IELTS again so, it's upto you again do it in advance from Pakistan or do it from Canada when you reach there.
