Professional Ethics module

Professional ethics is at the heart of the ACCA Qualification.

Professional ethics is covered in 11 of the 16 exam papers. This includes all papers at Professional level and three of the Essential performance objectives.

The Professional Ethics module underpins both your studies and your practical experience. The aim of the module is to introduce you to a range of ethical ideas.

You get access to the module when you become eligible to take Paper P1, Governance, Risk and Ethics. We recommend that you take the Professional Ethics module at around the same time as you take this paper. You must finish it before you can become a member and before you can finish your BSc degree.
