How long does it take to qualify


Greater flexibility for students

Our professional education cycle runs from October to the following September each year. Within this period, there is a choice of two courses and two examination sittings.

It is possible to obtain the Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification in less than 2 years where students commence their studies at Part 1. 

Students who are exempt from Part 1 can qualify within 1 year if they undertake both autumn and summer courses.

Students who choose to undertake one Part per academic year will take 3 years to qualify.

In summary, you choose how long it will take you to qualify!
