ICAEW has teamed up with the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) to provide a route that allows people to gain the AAT qualification and to progress onto the ACA via a faster route.
Qualified members of AAT are eligible to apply for ICAEW membership through the AAT-ACA Fast Track study route. If you are a current AAT member, you are eligible to apply for credit for prior learning (exam exemption) for certain ACA exam modules. Depending on the AAT papers you have passed, you may be eligible for up to five credits at the ACA exam modules. In addition, AAT students/members working in ICAEW authorised training offices may be entitled to count some of their AAT work experience towards their ACA work experience requirement.
Depending on how far into your studies with AAT Qualification you are, you could be exempt from four CIMA exams, meaning you’ll qualify sooner. More specifically, you can be exempted up to full CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting.
When you complete the AAT Qualification you can get some exemptions from Universities partnered with AAT up to a whole semester. If you click here you can see the list of these Universities.
