ACCA ex­emp­tion for pro­grammes

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

tunku Ab­dul Rah­man univer­sity Col­lege (TAR univer­sity Col­lege) has firmly es­tab­lished it­self as the in­sti­tu­tion of choice for pro­fes­sional busi­ness ed­u­ca­tion in Malaysia.

It has forged a close col­lab­o­ra­tion with the global body for pro­fes­sional ac­coun­tants, the ACCA, since 1971 via its Fac­ulty of Ac­coun­tancy, Fi­nance and Busi­ness (FAFB), to pre­pare stu­dents to ob­tain ACCA pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

This col­lab­o­ra­tion has nur­tured stu­dents who con­sis­tently win top prizes and plac­ings in the ACCA pro­fes­sional ex­am­i­na­tion.

The union has also con­ferred the Plat­inum Ap­proved Learn­ing Part­ner sta­tus on TAR univer­sity Col­lege, putting it in the world’s top 5% of ACCA tu­ition providers.

Re­cently, the ACCA awarded max­i­mum ex­emp­tion to two bach­e­lor de­gree pro­grammes of­fered by TAR univer­sity Col­lege dur­ing the visit by ACCA pres­i­dent Martin Turner.

He had pre­sented TAR univer­sity Col­lege pres­i­dent Datuk Dr Tan Chik Heok two letters of ex­emp­tion de­tail­ing the recog­ni­tion given by the ACCA to the univer­sity col­lege’s Bach­e­lor of Com­merce (Hon­ours) and Bach­e­lor of Ac­count­ing (Hon­ours) pro­grammes.

Dur­ing the cer­e­mony, TAR univer­sity Col­lege was high­lighted as the only in­sti­tu­tion in the world ap­proved by the ACCA to run the In­ter­nally As­sessed ACCA Fun­da­men­tals (Skills Mo­d­ule) pro­gramme for all the nine mod­ules.

The In­ter­nally As­sessed pro­gramme is in­cor­po­rated into the three-year Bach­e­lor of Com­merce (Hon­ours) pro­gramme.

The first let­ter out­lines the ex­emp­tion from Pa­pers F1 to F9 for stu­dents who have suc­cess­fully com­pleted Year 2 of the Bach­e­lor of Com­merce (Hon­ours) pro­gramme.

The se­cond let­ter de­lin­eates that the four-year Bach­e­lor of Ac­count­ing (Hon­ours) pro­gramme ac­cred­ited by ACCA is awarded max­i­mum ex­emp­tion from all nine pa­pers of the ACCA Fun­da­men­tals.

The ex­emp­tion granted by the ACCA is a clear in­di­ca­tion of the high stan­dards and qual­ity of the pro­grammes of­fered by TAR univer­sity Col­lege.

Dr Tan said, “This strong in­sti­tu­tional bond be­tween TAR univer­sity Col­lege and the ACCA can only be pos­si­ble with the con­tin­ued co­op­er­a­tion and sup­port for each other by these two or­gan­i­sa­tions.”

He said TAR univer­sity Col­lege val­ues the con­tri­bu­tion and role of the ACCA in forg­ing strate­gic al­liances and de­vel­op­ing ini­tia­tives with them to pro­vide dy­namic learn­ing and train­ing to stu­dents.

“This part­ner­ship has been most fruit­ful and mean­ing­ful,” he added. “We cher­ish this strong and es­tab­lished re­la­tion­ship and look for­ward to closer co­op­er­a­tion be­tween TAR uC and the ACCA for many more years to come.”

Turner also took the op­por­tu­nity to con­grat­u­late TAR univer­sity Col­lege on the up­grad­ing of sta­tus to univer­sity Col­lege by pre­sent­ing a con­grat­u­la­tory to­ken to Dr Tan.

This means that TAR univer­sity Col­lege is al­lowed to con­duct un­der­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate de­gree pro­grammes.

Its inau­gu­ral bach­e­lor de­gree pro­grammes started on Oct 21 and the univer­sity col­lege will have its Open Day from Dec 13 to 15 at its kuala Lumpur main cam­pus, branch cam­puses and fac­ulty branches.

The up­grad­ing is timely for TAR univer­sity Col­lege to in­ten­sify its role in de­vel­op­ing a tal­ent pool to meet the hu­man cap­i­tal needs of the na­tion.
