    So basically I'm coming to the end of my A levels and am hopefully going to study this degree http://www.uclan.ac.uk/information/c...ng_finance.php


    I want to become a chartered accountant with ICEAW. So I will have the opportunity to complete the CFAB qualification in addition to the degree. I understand I will have to obtain the ACA qualifiaction after my degree, please correct me if I am wrong. I was just wondering how long the ACA takes to complete?

    You will need to get a training contract to qualify as an ACA which are usually 3 years!

    Stuff Uni, get yourself on an apprenticeship. My apprenticeship will last 4 1/2 years (I think). Instead of three years at Uni and two years doing ACA, i'm doing three years of AAT and two years of ACA (I think, anyway). The benefit is i'll be getting experience and being paid for the apprenticeship. Win win in my opinion.

    The only entry requirement I had was to pass two small tests and do an interview. The firm I am with recruit from the local college, so they don't ask for entry requirements, they just ask for references.
