The ACA qualification, from the ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) is the newest addition to our thriving accountancy offering.

The ACA qualification from ICAEW is classed as a premium, gold standard accountancy qualification both in the UK and globally. In 2010, 84% of FTSE 100 companies had an ICAEW Chartered Accountant on the Board. Once you successfully complete the course, you are a Chartered Accountant and are able to use the letters ACA after your name.

City Campus, Newport is an ACCA Platinum Approved Learning Partner – the highest level of quality accreditation that a tuition provider can obtain, and we were also awarded the prestigious ‘Public Sector Accountancy College of the Year’ Award by PQ Magazine, a magazine for part-qualified accountants in both 2010 and 2012.

The ICAEW course at City Campus, Newport is studied part-time, to fit around your work and other commitments.
