The ACCA believes that accountants who are good – ie are professional and ethical – make good accountants. As a professional accountancy body, it is important to ACCA to ensure all students – irrespective of which qualification they are studying for and to which level they wish to take their career – understand what it means to work and act professionally and ethically in the workplace.

So if you study for any of the Foundation-level qualifications and want a certificate as proof of the exams you have completed, you are required to complete Foundations in Professionalism. This is an online, interactive module, designed to help you develop your understanding of what it means to act professionally and ethically in the work you carry out.

You can complete Foundations in Professionalism before or after completing the exam component of the qualification you are aiming to achieve and you only need to successfully complete the module once, even if you decide to complete one or more of our qualifications.

There is no set time allocated to completing Foundations in Professionalism. You are encouraged you to complete the module at your own pace to allow you to reflect on what you have learnt.
