The IAS Student Experience

Lectures and Tutorials

Weekly lectures and tutorials will be presented in all four disciplines: Financial Accounting IV, Management Accounting and Finance IV, Auditing IV, and Taxation IV. You will be exposed to new topics during the lectures and then be able to apply the knowledge you gained in tutorials.

The tutorial sessions will be presented in smaller groups. Here your tutor will explain all the different nuances of the topic based on the tutorial questions you prepared for the session. Examination technique, preparation and strategy will be discussed and you will also be able to ask any questions you might have. This process will ensure that you are up to speed on each topic covered in the syllabus.

IAS leaves no student behind!

Integrated lectures and tutorials will also be presented where you will be able to exercise your integrated thinking muscles.

All topics presented are in accordance with the SAICA competency based framework (CBF). At all times you will be able to track your knowledge and progress against the CBF to be sure that you will be prepared for the Initial Test of Competence (ITC).

Revolutionary Teaching Methodology

At IAS we strive to provide our students with the best CTA program in South Africa. Our goal is to produce the CA’s of the Future, using teaching methods suited to students in the 21st century.  

We have created a unique teaching environment where theory meets application. Not only will we provide you with the theoretical foundation of different topics but also show you how these topics are applied in practice.

Technology integration is at the core of our programme. We use a range of applications (videos, e-learning, infographics, etc.) in presenting the CTA as well as providing additional/support material for you to utilise as required. In addition, we will also teach you the necessary skills in utilising certain software applications in order to ensure that you are a work-ready individual upon graduating from IAS.

Resources at Your Disposal

All resources will be available to you at the click of a button. All content has been incorporated into our Learner Management System (Classe365) which you will be able to access upon registration. We also have an electronic and physical library that you can access on campus.

We believe it is of utmost importance that we provide you with a means of access to all resources. Therefore, all content are available online and can be accessed at any time.

Mentoring and Coaching

As a student you will have access to all lecturers for one-on-one consultations. In these sessions you will be able to ask any questions you might have on the content presented, obtain career advice, study skills, exam skills, etc. You will also have access to our motivational mechanisms, to ensure that you will pull through the more difficult times…

Lecturing Team

The IAS CTA programme is presented by a dynamic group of individuals. The team includes highly experienced lecturers as well as young, vibrant lecturers in touch with the needs of the modern student. Together the lecturing team will present the syllabus in a creative, insightful manner using a range of tools and techniques.


The goal of the lecturing team is to convey their knowledge as efficiently and effectively as possible, in order to ensure the success of our students.

"Your success is our success". 

The IAS Campus

At the IAS campus you will have access to a range of facilities that will meet all of your study needs.

You will attend all of your lectures in our fully equipped lecture venue, attend tutorials in the available tutorial rooms, and you will be able to perform all the research you require in our library, offering both electronic and physical resources. You will also be able to relax in our student hub and prepare your tutorials for the coming week.

There will always be a lecturer available if you need any assistance with a tutorial or any other matter.

We believe in creating a learning environment conducive to our students studying needs. Therefore we want you to feel at home on campus, be able to engage in the content, and always have someone around to assist.
