Qualified members of the ICAB will need to sit and pass four ACA examinations and the ethics module in order to be eligible to join the ICAEW.
Pathways to Membership
If you are a fully qualified ICAB member with at least five years’ full membership, you may be eligible to join ICAEW based on your experience. This is our Pathways to Membership route.
If you intend to practise in the UK you must apply for a practising certificate. You may only practice as an ICAEW member if you have been a member of ICAB for at least two years.
ICAEW membership does not automatically grant you audit rights in the UK, so if you intend to work in audit during your career, then we recommend that you apply for the Audit Qualification (AQ) when joining us.
