How is the ACA structured?

Full ACA training is available in Malta, combining four essential elements:

  1. exams,
  2. practical work experience,
  3. professional development and
  4. ethics and professional scepticism.

Together, these four elements give you the expertise and added-value skills that help define a chartered accountant. You must successfully complete all four elements to complete the ACA qualification and become an ICAEW Chartered Accountant.

Credit for prior learning

If you hold an accounting or business related degree or a professional accountancy qualification, you may be eligible for credits/exemptions for some of the ACA exams.

Credits have been granted to the Accounting programme from the University of Malta.

Check our credit directory to see if your university or degree course means you can apply for credit for some of the exam modules.

Exams

All ACA students study the MIA Maltese tax and law papers in place of the ACA UK tax and law papers.

In Malta exams are held in Valletta and all exams must be pre-booked. Details of the exam venue will be sent to you approximately two weeks before the examination date.

A number of providers offer ACA tuition in a variety of delivery methods around the world and online.

Training opportunities

Many organisations in Malta offer ACA training. Any organisation that offers ACA training will have met strict training criteria and will be authorised by ICAEW to train ACA students.

This helps ensure consistent support for our students wherever they train around the world.

Training internationally
