ICAEW is working closely with a number of Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) to provide unique options to students in pursuit of a premier professional accountancy qualification.

Our Strategic Partnerships allow students with or studying towards an academic qualification unique options and pathways towards ICAEW qualifications. These Strategic Partnerships provide excellent benefits for both students and employers, and are therefore highly desirable programmes for ambitious individuals.

We also work with a number of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to offer ACA students and fully qualified members opportunities for academic study using their qualification as credit for prior learning. Find our more about more Academic Qualification Opportunities for ACAs.
