Completely different approach to tuition, factoring in that most students are adult students. RCA lecturers have been there done that, which I think Is both unique but fundamental at the same time."

I tried BPP but RCA were far better in every respect - I have nothing but good words to say about them - and would recommend them to everyone taking ACCA
Really proud and happy to be a student in Richard Clarke Academy... When I had the pleasure to sit in his lectures Richard Clarke was really helpful... Richard has time for everyone!
"The tuition is excellent - I have already referred a friend who I studied with in University of Ulster"
Aaron is by far the best lecturer I have ever had, the way he taught P2 and P7 was fantastic, made it fun. Paddy was great for P3 and made P3 interesting (something I thought I would never say)
Massive thanks for all your help over the last 3 years, making it as enjoyable as possible, passed my final exam, P6 with 64 marks! I honestly couldn’t think of a better place to get through ACCA.
RCA brought a new innovative way of teaching, with dynamic lecturers and their lecture delivery. People at RCA understand us students and our concerns, and will act swiftly to help in any way possible
RCA is a great academy to study for your professional accounting exams, as an ACCA student I can say that all staff to the lecturers are fantastic and always there to help, always replying quickly.
I must say that the CIMA Strategy mock exam that Aaron, John and Paddy set and the mock review class really helped prepare me for this exam, it is probably what helped me pass.
