The ACA is a world class accountancy qualification with truly global appeal. It opens a wealth of opportunities, as you can specialise in specific areas or sectors, or work broadly across multiple industries.

If you have studied and qualified in a different accountancy qualification you may consider sitting the Advanced Level of ICAEW in order to gain the ACA qualification.

Kaplan offers courses specifically designed for this purpose, which are delivered flexibly via a recorded series of lectures. The course refreshes your knowledge of key examinable areas and technical content, but importantly shows you how it is examined from an ICAEW perspective. 

Please note: This course is not suitable for those students moving from Professional Level to Advanced Level. It is only appropriate for students who already have an accountancy qualification (please see the list of eligible qualifications below). You will need to provide documentation relating to your prior qualification to prove your eligibility for the course.
