Career choices as ACCA inside Nepal and abroad

The ever-looming question of studying any degree is a career – becoming an ACCA in Nepal may be unadvised by some in the market. Generally, people in Nepal advise to choose domestic Chartered Accountancy education from ICAN or one from ICAI The Institute of Chartered Certified Accountants of India. Both these degrees are respectable qualifications with recognition from international bodies like International Accounting standards IAS and International Financial Reporting Standards – provide students with a well-paid job and prestigious career. Supporters argue the benefit of auditing license these qualifications provide, the prior provides a certificate of practice in Nepal while others provide a certificate of practice in India.

The certificate of practice means the ability to sign off audited financial reports and statements under a particular country’s law. The ACCA student needs to make extra effort to gain the certificate of practice in Nepal and neighboring India. The people believe there is a significantly greater return in income from the ability to sign off financial statements but it is only partially true. Further, people believe auditing license from neighboring India is equally valuable because of its emergence as an economic hub in recent years. However, these are a little misleading because ACCA qualification and right to audit in the UK like Singapore, UAE, Australia, and more with significant ease make ACCA equally lucrative for ACCA students in Nepal. The ACCA’s headquarter London has long been the economic and financial hub of the globe for centuries due to the quality of service available there. The need for chartered certified accountants and other positions available subsequent to ACCA is huge there. An added benefit of securing a job in the United Kingdom as an Auditor or in any other role allows the opportunity to earn in pounds, a strong global currency.

Seed Financial Academy, a prominent ACCA College in Nepal has launched its own E-Learning platform for its students branded as “SEED E-ACADEMY”. E-Academy will provide an alternative learning platform by introducing Recorded Lectures for all ACCA Papers in Nepal.

ACCA students, through Seed E-Academy, can purchase and prepare for 4 papers currently (FA, PM, FR, AA) and will be extended to all papers by the end of 2020. The lecture includes PowerPoint presentations with in-depth audio commentary, developed and delivered by a vibrant pool of tutors. Students can also download worksheets, exam-style questions and other exclusive ACCA study materials. They will also receive suggested readings and assignment reviews from top tutors and can directly contact tutors in case of queries related to the subject.

Speaking at the launching ceremony, Academic Director, Ananta Gautam announced that the E-Academy courses will be provided free to all students of Seed Financial Academy, a major step taken by the college to introduce the blended learning model for ACCA courses in Nepal. Blended learning combines online digital learning with traditional place-based classroom methods. It requires the physical presence of both teacher and student, with some elements of student control over time, place, path, or pace.

Gautam also announced that with the introduction of the blended learning model, the college will be able to provide 3 months’ session on certain papers like Corporate & Business Law (LW), Financial Reporting (FR) and Audit & Assurance (AA). He emphasized on how fragile the 3 months’ session classes had been run in Nepal without proper planning and faced problems of course completion and revision. Now, with Blended Learning Model, Seed claims to fill the gap that students felt missing in those sessions with its strategy to focus on exam preparation and techniques during physical classes and theoretical aspects during online learning to ensure the timely completion of the syllabus with enough time for students for revision.

One of the students, Ujjwal said, “The lectures are thorough, complete and exam-oriented. Tutors are succinct. The standards are high and it will surely be advantageous for students all over Nepal who wish to study ACCA from home or workplace without compromising on quality.

The initiative amid the pandemic is a praiseworthy step. Students willing to get enrolled in ACCA but unable to get back to Kathmandu or to attend physical classes will not have to wait until the pandemic stops. The college has been pushing boundaries from time to time, be it partnering with employers, internship placements or addressing ACCA job market problems with “employ ability skills” paper and with the ‘e-academy’ initiative, Seed continues to be the most forward-thinking ACCA learning provider in Nepal.
