ICAEW Work & Study


Thank you for your interest in taking part in one of our discussion groups / interviews.

ICAEW has commissioned an independent company (Magenta Research) to run discussion groups and interviews to understand more about ACA students’ experiences of study and work.

As ICAEW’s 10-year strategy names ‘Attracting diverse talent’ as one of ICAEW’s five key priorities, we are particularly interested in hearing about the experiences of female students, students from a Black Heritage background, students with learning difficulties, students from the LGBTQ+ community and students from lower socio-economic backgrounds.

About the research sessions:
  • The sessions will be held online during the weeks commencing 27 September and 11 October.
  • Sessions will be held at different times in the day and evening.
  • You may be invited to a 1-hour individual interview or a 2-hour group discussion which includes 4-5 other people.
  • If you are invited to attend, each participant will receive a cash remuneration as a thank you for your time.
  • The sessions will be recorded for research purposes only.
  • All your personal data will be destroyed within 90 days of the project completion date.

If you are open to sharing your experiences, please complete this short survey and supply your contact details. It will take you no longer than 6 minutes to complete. 

  • Your responses will only be used for research purposes.
  • Your responses will not be shared with your employer.
  • Your individual responses will not be shared with ICAEW. Anonymous aggregated data only will be provided to ICAEW and they will not be able to identify who has responded.
