The ACA from ICAEW is internationally recognised as a premier financial business qualification in more than 160 countries around the world.
We welcome university graduates on to the ACA programme; however your degree does not necessarily need to be in the field of business or finance. It can be a recognised degree in any discipline. Individuals with other professional qualifications or experience (such as ACCA, CIMA etc) can also study for the ACA from ICAEW.
However, if you are a high achiever who is in their final year before university graduation, it may be possible to register with ICAEW earlier. Please contact our student support helpline to discuss your circumstances.
In Russia, all students must take a two level English language test before being admitted onto the course.
There are two ways you can study for the ACA qualification.
There are a growing number of organisations around the world that offer ACA training including accountancy practices, businesses, industry and government. Any organisation that offers ACA training opportunities will have met strict training criteria and will be authorised by ICAEW to train ACA students. This helps ensure support for our students wherever they train around the world.
Our careers site offers you support and advice on how to make the step from university to ACA training and beyond, explains your options and allows you to search for ACA training opportunities.
The full ACA programme is available in Russia. It combines four essential elements: exams, technical work experience, initial professional development and structured training in ethics. Together, these four elements give you the expertise and added-value skills that help define a chartered accountant. You must successfully complete all four elements to qualify as an ACA and become a member of ICAEW.
