We have seen that ACCA students and members go on to pursue rewarding careers which also gives them international exposure within their industry. Therefore, UKCBC would like to facilitate this journey for students who are thinking of beginning their ACCA journey.’
The college already has 6 campuses in and around London including an English Language arm, UK College of English (UKCE) with more than 3000 overall student populations.
