Flexible Route

Entry Routes

Our Flexible Route allows students to stay in their current job, study on their own terms and generate the relevant work experience now or further down the line. This route covers the same subjects, the same exams but critically, the education and experience elements do not have to run concurrently. Students don't have to be working in a relevant role when they begin their studies. This route is also a great stepping stone to help students find the career they've always wanted. 


Who is a Flexible Route suited to?

If you are working in business, a graduate, a postgraduate, a school leaver or an Accounting Technicians Ireland graduate, this route is open to you. If you’ve been working for less than four years, the only stipulation is that you generate at least one year of relevant accountancy experience before sitting your final exams (FAE).
