This dissertation is concerned with the issue that students studying part-time for professional accounting examinations - specifically those in management accounting of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) - at a London university suffer much higher failure rates than their counterparts taking degrees in Accounting at the same institution, who are entitled to exemptions from many of the professional accounting papers. Utilising the 'Student Approaches to Learning' (SAL) methodology, the differences between the students are examined in terms of factors affecting the presage to learning, the learning process, and the product of learning.
