How is the ACA structured?

Full ACA training is available in Mauritius, 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.

Entry requirements

There are a number of entry routes to the ACA programme, but the minimum academic entry requirement is two A levels, or the international equivalent.


Certificate level exams are held across Mauritius including Ebene and Port Louis.

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

If you hold an accounting or business related degree or a professional accountancy qualification that you completed in Mauritius or overseas, you may be eligible for to exemptions from some of the ACA exams.
