London School of Business and Finance Collaborates with Bridge Business College to offer professional accounting qualifications

Singapore, 28 February 2018– London School of Business and Finance (LSBF) and Bridge Business College have collaborated to offer Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) programmes in Sydney.

The partnership has established LSBF-Bridge in Sydney as an ACCA Silver Approved Learning Partner (ALP) – the first ALP to be introduced in Australia. The ALP status is awarded by ACCA Global to learning providers for the quality tuition and support that they offer to ACCA students.

The ACCA programmes at LSBF-Bridge will incorporate online and classroom learning to give students a blended learning experience.  Students can have access to recorded video lessons by qualified local tutors, as well as quizzes, mock exams, eBooks and an E-Revision Kit – all geared to helping students to understand and pass the exams.

In Singapore, LSBF is an ACCA Platinum Approved Learning Partner and has successfully produced ACCA Prize Winners every year, bringing the total number to 188 within 17 exam sittings. LSBF ACCA students have come in first, second or third place in Singapore and are placed in the top 30 worldwide for the foundation and professional level papers.

LSBF-Bridge will also offer students the option to pursue diplomas in both Australia and Singapore as part of the LSBF Global Learning Experience. The LSBF Global Learning Experience allows student movement from other LSBF destinations to LSBF-Bridge in Sydney to further their studies.

With LSBF-Bridge dual qualifications, students can choose to study* with any of LSBF’s university partners and any Australian university.

*Dependent on students’ GPA and upon meeting the requirements of chosen university

Kiaran Green, CEO of Bridge Business College, said: “I am very excited about this partnership. Singapore is fast becoming the financial hub of Asia. This makes LSBF in Singapore an exciting place for any student to be learning.”

Rathakrishnan Govind, LSBF Global CEO, said: “Sydney is a popular education destination. I’m looking forward to this new chapter in the LSBF Global Learning Experience.”
