Prospective employers will also be able to recognise student members via the official designation Youth Associates (ISCA).
Foreigners are welcome to join if they fulfil the entry requirements of being undergraduates in either accredited or recognised accounting degree programmes in Singapore. A list of the accepted degrees are below:
Accredited degrees in accountancy are degrees that are approved and listed by the Singapore Accountancy Commission as appropriate for direct entry to the Singapore CA Qualification. Recognised accounting degrees are degrees that are recognised for admission as Youth Associate (ISCA). Recognition does not have equal status to accreditation as there is no formal evaluation on the quality of the university. Recognition is an approach to place reliance on the internal quality assurance of the university which has been accredited by the local government or other locally recognised accreditation bodies.
