Entry requirements and exemptions

 

Open to all disciplines







It is not necessary to have studied business or legal disciplines before undertaking the Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification.  For example, engineers, scientists and teachers have become highly successful tax advisers. However, if candidates have studied law, accounting or tax previously, they may benefit from exemptions.











Entry requirements







Applicants who hold an undergraduate degree at honours level (Level 8 of the National Framework of Qualifications) or equivalent can enrol on our programme.









Exemptions







If you have studied law, accounting or tax previously, you may benefit from exemptions. Check your exemptions.









If your qualification is not listed, you can still apply for exemptions on a case-by-case basis. See page 26 of the Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) Course Information & Regulations 2016/2017.









If you do not hold a Level 8 qualification or equivalent





Candidates who do not hold an honours degree or equivalent may be considered on a case-by-case basis, through the recognition of work-based learning (see page 25 of the Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) Course Information & Regulations 2016/2017).
