Global Business University-Europe accepts members of professional bodies – such as ACCA, ICAEW and Associate Members of ICPAP – in its Bachelor in Finance top-up programme.

Eligible candidates are exempted from all subjects on the basis of taking one exam and submitting an up to standard 6,000-word Project.

In order to be admitted to the Bachelor in Finance top-up programme, you will need to submit an application form alongside copies of academic/professional credentials and an application fee.

Once the application is evaluated and approved, we will proceed with issuing an Admission Letter. Upon receipt of a registration fee, we will dispatch your ID card, course material, and Project Manual.

Within 3 months of registration, students should submit a Project proposal for approval. Meanwhile, they will need to prepare for taking an exam in Financial Management, either in January or in June. Once the Project proposal is approved, you will start work on your Project. This usually takes a minimum of 6 months. Before you submit your Project, you will have to settle all outstanding fees.

Should you pass the Financial Management exam and the Project is deemed at a satisfactory level (i.e. above 50%), you will be awarded with a Bachelor degree and a full transcript. If you fail to pass your Project, you will have to revise your work and resubmit (at a cost of a resubmission fee).

For further details and for information about the fees, please contact us at

Note: Students who successfully complete their degree may apply (See ODAT.147 form) to have their degree certificate attested at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Cyprus – upon submitting the required fee.
