We look forward to hearing from you while you train to become a Certified Public Accountant.

At the start of each month, you will receive the monthly Student News e-bulletin so be sure to keep a close eye on your inbox. This is essential reading for any CPA Ireland student as it will keep you informed and up to date on Institute news, such as deadlines for applying for examinations, and provide you with important insights into the areas of taxation, business, and practice. Articles related to the CPA Ireland syllabus are also included on a regular basis.

In addition to accessing the syllabus, you can access past papers and suggested solutions, articles, webinars, briefing documents and other valuable information.
