ACCA Classroom Courses / Timetable

The School of Professional Studies (SPS) of Cyprus College offers courses for the ACCA exams in both evening (part-time) and block release (BRCs) modes.

Our ACCA part-time (evening) courses usually commence in early January (for the June exams) and in early July (for the December exams).

These courses are usually taught on a weekly basis (1-2 times per week) between 6:15pm and 9:15pm. Occasionally, there might be a Saturday class, and this will be held between 9am and 2pm or between 9am and 3pm (specific details for each course are provided on the timetable).

As far as our ACCA block-release courses are concerned, they usually commence in February (for the June exams) and in August (for the December exams).

These courses are quite intense, as the syllabus is covered in four phases:

  • 3 teaching phases (usually a Friday and a Saturday): 2 days x 6 hours  (some ACCA courses do require additional teaching days)
  • 1 revision phase (spread over 3 separate weeks thus allowing students adequate time to revise the material): 1 day/week x 6 hours x 3 weeks (some ACCA courses offer a 4-day revision).

The teaching phases are held every three weeks, so the visits at the college are not as often as the ones for the part-time courses.

The block release courses require more discipline and a lot of self-study, as a large amount of material is delivered over a short period of time. These courses are ideal for students with heavy work load and / or family obligations. The part-time / evening courses on the other hand, follow a slower pace and the syllabus is delivered in smaller chunks. It requires self-study and hard work as well, but the amount of material you will need to cover in each study session will be smaller compared with the block release courses.

For our timetables, please select the branch you are interested in and then the type of course you would like to attend.

It is vital to decide in advance how many and which papers you will attempt in each examination sitting.

Your plan should be based on the following factors:

  1. Educational background
  2. Professional background / experience
  3. Time you will have available to study

We normally recommend to students who have a full time job and study part time to attempt a maximum of two papers per examination sitting while for the full time students we recommend three papers per sitting.
