2019 Admission Ceremony Countdown

 EICC in Edinburgh
By Alex Burden, Student Blog

11 March 2018

We have started our countdown to the 2019 ICAS Admission Ceremony, held on 23 March in Edinburgh, and with less than two weeks to go it's time to checklist entry requirements!

A great deal of the #ICASclassof2019 have already secured their places at the event, which marks at least three years of serious study and commitment and welcoming the next generation of CAs into ICAS.

Mark Allison, Executive Director of Learning said: “One of my favourite days in the ICAS calendar is the annual Admission Ceremony. This is a big day when student members finally become CAs after all their hard work.

“For those of you reaching the end of your training contracts, I’d strongly encourage you to attend this ceremony. It gives you, and the people who have supported you along the way, a real chance to stand back and take stock of everything you have achieved.”

Inspiration and celebration are never far from the proceedings, however, students will also learn about the honour and responsibility that come with joining ICAS. As part of the ceremony, they will take an ethical oath emphasising their professional commitment.
