ABS offers ACCA in Kandy

Due to popular demand, ABS is set to expand its qualification offering in Kandy by adding ACCA to the range of tuition available.

"We identified a substantial increase in demand for the ACCA Qualification", said ABS Director and CEO Wasantha Fernando. "ACCA is internationally renowned and we attribute this upsurge in interest to the portability and flexible nature of the qualification. Extending our ACCA tuition provision to Kandy makes good business sense for us."

ACCA Sri Lanka's Business Relationship Manager, Nilusha Ranasinghe, welcomes the news of ABS expansion. "ACCA is a relative newcomer to the Sri Lankan market, but our brand awareness has grown fast and this is reflected in demand from both prospective students and employers. We are delighted that ABS has further invested in its ACCA tuition and look forward to continuing to work closely with them in the future."

With over 6,000 students studying annually, ABS is a well-established tuition provider in Colombo with a reputation for quality tuition that gets results. So can prospective students in Kandy be assured of the same kind of quality? "Absolutely", says Wasantha. "To ensure consistent delivery of all subjects, some of our Colombo-based lecturers are complementing our excellent Kandy team."

In order to meet the demand for ACCA in the Kandy area, ABS are offering both week-day and weekend classes, thereby meeting the needs of both full- and part-time students. In the field of accountancy and finance, the ACCA Qualification uniquely delivers both a professional qualification and a degree, through ACCA's partnership with Oxford Brookes University in the UK which enables students to gain a BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting as part of their studies.

And from January 2009, ABS will also offer Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) tuition at both its Colombo and Kandy centres. The ACCA CAT qualification is an ideal opportunity for those who are 16 or over to get a head start on a professional accountancy qualification. In addition to being a stand alone qualification, it also provides a route into ACCA's professional qualification.
