You could also continue your studies by progressing on to the professional examinations of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), or the Association of Chartered Accountants (ACCA).

Additional information

Additional independent study outside of College will be regularly expected. The professional examinations require a high standard of preparation and considerable commitment if success is to be achieved. In addition to the course fees you will also be required to pay a resource fee of up to approximately £200 to cover the costs of books and £50 for any trips/visits. The course fee covers the cost of one exam for all units, so re-sits will need to be paid for if qualifying conditions have not been met. An additional £50 resource fee will also need to be paid on induction.
