We will be introducing a new syllabus for our qualifying scheme in autumn 2019. Our first priority is to make sure that, as a current student, you know what’s changing, how it may affect you, and exactly what your next steps should be. It is important to us that your studies are not disrupted by these changes and that you move seamlessly from the current syllabus to the new one.
Your exam results will be available online on 30 January. Later that week, please look out for a letter from ICSA advising you which modules you should take in the following examination sessions. There will be three further examination sessions before the syllabus changes, which will make it easy for you to plan for a smooth transition. Once you have received your letter, our student support team will be on hand to answer any further questions that you have.

Simon Osborne FCIS, CEO of the UK, Republic of Ireland and Associated Territories division, outlined the strategic drivers for the proposed changes, and what they would mean for you. He will also answer any questions that you have and look forward to hearing your views on these issues.
