What is ICAEW?

ICAEW is the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. We were founded in 1880 and support more than 150,000 ICAEW Chartered Accountants in 155 countries around the world.

Our members work in organisations in every industry and are on the boards of 78% of FTSE 100 companies. Our ACA qualification is recognised and respected internationally and required by many finance and accountancy firms.

What we do:

  • Ensure the highest professional standards.
  • Promote, develop and support ICAEW Chartered Accountants.
  • Share expertise to advance the accountancy and finance profession.

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.


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.

Hear from our students and members

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.

Training internationally

If you want to train for the ACA in another country, you must ensure you are entitled to work in that country. It is your responsibility to understand what work visa you need and how to secure one. ICAEW cannot support you in this process, but your potential employer might be able to offer advice.

Are you a member of another professional body?

If you are a member of another professional accountancy body you may be able to join ICAEW through one of its reciprocal agreements.
