Teaching and assessment

  • At CATUC our students will enjoy significantly more direct tutor contact than available on most ACCA courses and the focus of that tutor contact is very much on optimising learning as opposed to simply delivering a series of lectures.

  • CATUC wants to make you experienced accounting and finance professionals and we do this by making available to you experienced teachers of accounting, who recognize the importance of really engaging students with the course material.

Attached profile of teachers:

  • Therefore, not only will CATUC students benefit from lectures delivered by industry experts, they will also spend significant time on case studies, participate in interactive group sessions, practise questions and have plenty of opportunities to hone their exam techniques.

  • For ACCA exam success, it's important not only to acquire the necessary knowledge but also to gain an in-depth understanding of how to apply that knowledge.

  • Assessment will be by external ACCA examination but CATUC will have opportunities to give its students internal assessments and mock exams

  • Exams are administered in Cameroon by British Council Cameroon and the scripts are sent to London where they are marked and the results sent individually to the students.

  • For now, exams are written twice every year i.e. in June and December. A student can sit a minimum of 1 paper or a maximum of 4 papers per exam session.

There are 3 exam centers in Cameroon, that is, Bamenda, Buea and Yaounde.
