What professional qualifications will I study for?

If you join our assurance practice, you will study for your Association of Chartered Accountants (ACA) qualification. You can achieve this through three entry routes which are dependent on the exemptions that your college course gives you.

We also have opportunities for a number of graduates within risk assurance to pursue further study in areas that complement our specialisms such as data analytics and IT.

ACA qualification routes

Direct entry

This is the route you take if you are joining PwC directly after college. Some degrees will entitle you to exemptions from the first set of exams (CAP1) and you will start with CAP2 exams. If your degree doesn't entitle you to any exemptions, you will sit three sets of exams.

Benefits include

  • CAP 1, CAP 2 and FAE course fees paid (first attempt only)
  • Exam fees paid (first attempt only)
