Classroom courses

Providing you with the opportunity to learn and take exams safely is our priority.

Kaplan will run ACCA classes using our award winning Live Online platform via virtual classes until it's safe to do otherwise. Student health and safety remains our number one priority.

Given the current rise in cases that the UK is experiencing and more specifically the heightened ongoing government guidance we have taken the decision that all of our classroom courses will be delivered remotely via Live Online until at least mid June 2021.

If you are already enrolled on a classroom course that starts after March 2021 you will be contacted by Kaplan student services to arrange a transfer onto a Live Online course and arrange any refunds for price differentials.

Extra information for students enrolled on March 2021 QBD courses

Please note that if you are booked on a full day Question Based Day (QBD) course which will now be delivered via Live Online that you will need to complete your QBD answers ahead of the Live Online session. This is so our expert markers can mark your questions and provide feedback ahead of the live session. Once you have received your marked questions back, the remaining 2.5 hours of your QB course will be delivered via a live session with your tutor who will debrief the questions focussing on those areas that the class showed most need for improvement.

Deadlines for submission can be found in your QBD course within MyKaplan and we will be sending further reminders in due course.

Future courses

For courses starting up to mid June 2021 (predominantly courses for the March and June 2021 sittings) we will not be running physical classroom courses as current lockdown measures are expected to last for the foreseeable future.

Kaplan have a wide range of remote learning options available as an alternative to help you continue to study, including Live Online options for:

  • Evenings
  • Afternoons
  • Full day weekday
  • Full day weekend

We also have a full range of award winning OnDemand courses. Please visit our ACCA timetable page for further information on your options for studying in classrooms and Live Online in 2021.

If you are a sponsored student please discuss your options with your employer.
