    Ok, here's the situation, I absolutely hate doing AS level let alone continuing onto A2. I'd preferably like to do an accountancy apprenticeship as that's the career I am pursuing.

    What I want to know is; can I become a chartered accountant through an apprenticeship? Or do I have to take a university course to become a chartered accountant?

    Thanks

    Hi mate sorry no one got back to you quickly. To become a chartered accountant you need to complete professional qualifications, you can either go to university to get exemptions, a school leaver programme after completing a levels or doing an AAT apprenticeship at college.

    The best option depends really on how well your doing in your A levels. If you think you can get Anywhere from BBC-AAB after your a levels school leavers programme with a firm is probably your best bet, guaranteed job after if you complete your exams, work experience on the job and a salary + you don't have to pay for your exams.

    Not really know much about an AAT at college but you'll need to get someone to sponsor you to do your ACA which will mean you will become a charged accountant.

    Anyways explore the options and drop me a message back if you need any more help.

    I've just been accepted on a training scheme from a local firm. It's basically an apprenticeship, and I start by doing 2 years at college for the AAT exams. Then I complete the ACA exams in the next 2 1/2- 3 years to become Chartered. (It's worth noting that only certain firms can offer ACA training).

    So to answer your question, no, you definitely don't have to go to Uni!
