The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) is to launch a new online community for accounting students.
The site will offer information and guidance on relevant topics to support ACA and CFAB students, as well as containing a forum where members can swap tips and network. Membership will be open to all ACA or CFAB students, including those outside the UK.
As part of the launch later this month, the site will host regular ‘Ask a Tutor’ sessions, starting with an online Q&A with a lecturer from the London School of Business and Finance on 25 and 26 August for ACA students sitting professional stage exams in September.
“The concept of social networking has become an integral part of society”, said James Bulloss, chair of the ICAEW student council.
“The student community is a fantastic opportunity for all students to have a forum outside of their immediate location and year group, and also gain a greater affinity with the institute”.
