If you’re studying at university and interested in a highly rewarding career in accountancy, finance or business, then you can start your journey with ICAEW now through the ICAEW Student Scheme (USS).

What is the USS?

USS is an online toolkit to help you develop the job-essential skills that employers are looking for in graduates. Whether you want to strengthen your CV, gain additional support for your degree, or simply stand out from your peers; the ICAEW Student Scheme can help you.

Job-essential skills resources

Develop skills for the workplace with our range of webinars and sheets on topics including:

  • What employers look for.
  • How to describe your skills on a CV.
  • Commercial awareness.
  • Interview techniques.

Microsoft Excel online training
Microsoft Excel is the perfect tool to help you organise all aspects of your personal, student and business life. With our online training programme, Students’ Excel, you can complete progress tests, watch video tutorials and track your personal improvement. What better way to enhance your CV!

How much does it cost?
For a £20 one-off fee, you will gain full access to all of the features and resources the scheme has to offer for the entire duration of your studies. What’s more, you can continue to use the Scheme for up to twelve months after your graduation date.

ICAEW CFAB – an extra qualification
When you join the ICAEW Student Scheme we will automatically waive the fee to register for our key business skills qualification – the Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (ICAEW CFAB). You get a certificate for each module you complete, so it’s a great way to evidence your business skills to potential employers.

So, if you wanted to study for the Certificate alongside your degree, all you have to do is pay for the exams as you take them.
