IAS introduces phased approach to 2020 January PGDA intake for budding Chartered Accountants.
Phased application considerations
The application process is broken into 3 phases, where students in earlier phases will have preference to getting a space on the programme. Students applying late therefore are only therefore accepted subject to space being available in a competitive process. Each phase is explained below:
Phase 1 applications are considered first, and awarded spaces on the programme if they meet the admission criteria and are accepted. This phase closes on 15 September 2018.
This phase is more competitive, and does not have immediate space allocation if students meet the criteria and are accepted. Students are placed on a waiting list which is competitive, and based on space availability. This phase runs from 16 September to 30 November 2019, and is dependent on space available in class.
If space is still available in the class after phase 2, phase 3 applications are invited. This process is again competitive based on marks and application assessment. Spaces will be extremely limited in this phase. Running from 1 December to 10 January 2020 space permitting.
