ICAEW - Qualification Papers

The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales is a world leading professional membership organisation that promotes, develops and supports over 144,000 chartered accountants worldwide. We provide qualifications and professional development, share our knowledge, insight and technical expertise, and protect the quality and integrity of the accountancy and finance profession. www.icaew.com

The ICAEW chartered accountancy qualification, the ACA, is one of the most advanced learning and professional development programmes available. Its integrated components provide an in-depth understanding across accountancy, finance and business. Combined, these components help build the technical knowledge, professional skills and practical experience needed to become an ICAEW Chartered Accountant.

Each component is designed to complement each other, which means that students can put theory into practice and can understand and apply what they learn to their day-to-day work

The components are:

  • Professional development
  • Ethics and professional scepticism
  • Three to five years’ practical work experience
  • 15 accountancy, finance and business exams

ICAEW constantly reviews the content of the ACA qualification to reflect real-life trends and advances in technology. We work closely with employers, tuition providers, academics and examiners to ensure that the updates equip the chartered accountants of the future with the skills and knowledge they need to be successful.
