Higher education institutions (HEIs)

The ICAEW Partner in Learning scheme is designed to incorporate the services and activities that the ICAEW currently offer higher education institutions (HEIs).

HEIs that currently engage with the ICAEW through activities such as graduate recruitment, credit for prior learning (CPL), and purchase or use of our learning materials can apply for recognition as an ICAEW Partner in Learning. Admission to the scheme is free. If we can work together and communicate openly, your students will reap the benefits as they embark on their future careers.

Below is a list of HEIs who are recognised ICAEW Partners in Learning.

Applying for Partner in Learning status

Partner in Learning status is awarded to higher education institutions who can demonstrate their commitment to the five core principles, which ensure consistency in the quality of tuition provision for ICAEW qualifications around the world. The five core principles and best practice indicators may vary depending on the qualification offered by the organisation.

Recognised Partners in Learning can benefit from the following:

  • A dedicated HEI manager
  • Use of the 'Partner in Learning' logo on classroom and marketing materials.
  • Invitations to HEI conferences and events
  • Advice on how to incorporate our ACA qualification into your degree programme (CPL)
  • Access to VITAL, the ICAEW student magazine, and Student Recruitment services
  • Access to the HEI’s area of the ICAEW website
  • Access to electronic reference copies of learning materials when new editions are published

If your higher education institution meets the five core principles (detailed in the application pack) and is happy to demonstrate its commitment to these principles during a supportive visit from the ICAEW Learning team, please download the application pack.
