I got a grad offer from PWC being told I was to study the ACA, however, I have now been told they will make me study for an ACA CTA joint programme and I'm not really sure what that will mean

Cta is a tax qualification. Did you apply for tax?

I did apply for tax but they told me that they would only be offering the CTA for me so I initially refused as I wanted the ACA. They offered me another role within tax that still offered the ACA but now they've told me this.

So I guess now i just get both qualifications? I didn't want to specialise in tax which is why I asked for the ACA. So is making it joint a good thing for me?

Well - I’d imagine that you would be working in the tax department (which area of tax?) but would study ACA and then move onto CTA.

This seems a good idea to me. For all it’s more work aca is a well known qualification and does give you some flexibility going forwards.

I don't understand exactly what it means as they say I should get the ACA and CTA in 4 years of study. So apparently I would be studying them both together.

I'm not sure - but I think to start the CTA you would do some ACA exams, particularly the tax ones to get some background. Why not contact some current trainees and find out? Or, given you have an offer, arrange to meet with a training manager to discuss?

They have just introduced this new joint programme for my new year coming in.
Reading into it I came across this I’m really pleased that the CIOT and ICAEW have worked together to introduce a joint programme for the ACA and CTA qualifications. The route offers an accelerated route without compromising on the key quality standards that I know both the CIOT and the ICAEW uphold.

So im assuming im just doing both at the same time

I googled and think you are right. Seems that you can use the CTA exams for exemptions from the ACA tax papers
