ICAI members - join ICAEW
As a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), you can join ICAEW by passing our advanced ACA exams. Alternatively, you may be eligible to join ICAEW based on your experience through our Pathways to Membership route. You can also apply for a practising certificate and gain audit rights in the UK with our Audit Qualification.
Qualified members of the ICAI will need to sit and pass the ACA's Advanced Stage exams and the ethics module in order to be eligible to join the ICAEW.
Pathways to Membership
If you are a fully qualified ICAI 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 or EC you must apply for a practising certificate. You may only practice as an ICAEW member if you have been a member of ICAI 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.
