Responding to COVID-19: insight, support and guidance

Face-to-face training continues into spring

Following a successful trial in the autumn, we are once again offering optional face-to-face sessions in the UK for all our accountancy qualification modules starting in the spring.

As before, the face-to-face sessions are completely optional, with online sessions continuing as normal for anyone who would prefer not to travel or mix with other students.

Which modules will have face-to-face sessions?

We are offering face-to-face options for the first day of classes for all accountancy qualification modules for students based in the UK:

  • Management Accounting (MA)
  • Financial Accounting (FA)
  • Audit and Assurance (AA)
  • Company Financial Reporting (CFR)
  • Strategy and Policy Development (SPD)
  • Business and Change Management (BCM)
  • Corporate Governance and Law (CGL)
  • Taxation (TAX)
  • Financial Management (FM)
  • Public Sector Financial Reporting (PSFR)
  • Strategic Public Finance (SPF)
  • Strategic Case Study (SCS)

We are also offering face-to-face revision options for the same 12 modules.

Where will the sessions be held?

The delivery locations are London, Birmingham and Manchester (please note that all 12 modules will be delivered in London, but only some in the other two venues). The ‘day one’ module and revision sessions have been scheduled where we believe there will be the highest demand.

We will do our best to accommodate everyone’s preferences, but as it is difficult to predict demand, we may need to make changes if we have particularly low or high demand for certain days.

How do I book sessions?

Once your module group has been booked, you will receive an email with optional alternative dates for the face-to-face sessions(s) and instructions for booking. We will be allocating students to the face-to-face sessions on a first-come, first-served basis. We will do our best to accommodate everyone.

Any other questions?

We are continuing to review how we teach. This means exploring hybrid learning, combining the benefits of improved remote learning with options for some face-to-face classes, to give you the best possible experience.
