Classroom programme

By choosing the classroom route you will benefit from the expertise and guidance of our team of expert tutors including Professor Robert Kirk and Ben Wheaton. Our class size, usually around 30 people, also means that you can interact with the tutors, ask questions and address issues throughout the programme.

You will also gain from peer-to-peer learning in case study groups and informally, outside the classroom. This aspect of the programme and the network of contacts you will make can both benefit you on the programme itself and beyond in terms of career development and networking opportunities.

The classroom version of the programme is ideal for those who enjoy a high-support, fast-paced, structured approach to learning. 


You will attend seven weekend modules and be guided through the programme by our team of expert tutors.

The programme is designed for qualified members of Chartered Accountants Ireland, but other qualified accountants are welcome to participate, places permitting.
