ICAEW develops affordable qualification programme

The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) has partnered with the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) and Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) to develop a part-time degree programme designed to widen participation in higher education.

The new partnership will enable students to gain Honours and Masters degrees, as well as the AAT and ICAEW CA qualifications at competitive prices.

The ICAEW said the whole programme, up to the completion of the Masters degree, will cost £15,000 ($24,193) offering a more cost-effective and flexible opportunity to develop professional skills.

ICAEW executive director for learning and professional development Mark Protherough said with rising tuition fees impacting on the affordability of higher education it is essential that we provide flexible routes into the profession”.

“It’s important for employers to see a return on their investment too. Programmes like this are not only extremely cost-effective but also promote staff loyalty and retention.”

The Honours degree will include a full AAT qualification that can be achieved in three years and nine months. Two additional years will be required for the Masters degree and will include the completion of the ICAEW’s ACA qualification.

The ICAEW added the programme will have multiple entry points and will deliver a recognised qualification on completion of each stage.

The programme will start in January 2012.
