Research and Analysis Project submissions and re-submissions should all be made via an online registration
page. You will be required to complete your personal details online as well as entering your Project Mentor

You must pay a project submission fee to Oxford Brookes with any project submission. The Oxford Brookes
Research and Analysis Project (RAP) submission fee for period 35 is £300 (subject to approval). The fee for
period 36 is £300 (subject to approval).
The link will close at 12.00 (midnight) GMT on the day stated on the project submission dates page. Should
you experience any difficulties uploading your Research and Analysis Project, please contact the ACCA Office
at Oxford Brookes via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do not send hard copies as these will not be accepted.
You can upload your Research and Analysis Project in all major file formats, see below for details. You should
upload separate files for your Research Report, Skills and Learning Statement, Appendices and List of Referen-
ces; these will all then be submitted along with your payment.

liest receipt date of the project.
