AAA-UK syllabus and learning outcomes

The syllabus and study guide for the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland (IRL) version of the AAA Advanced Audit and Assurance exam is designed to help with planning study and to provide detailed information on what could be assessed in any examination session.

Should you wish to practise as a registered auditor within the UK and/or Ireland (obtain the audit qualification/audit practising certificate), you must attempt the SBR UK/Irish and AAA UK/Irish exam

You can download the syllabus and study guide from the 'Related documents' section of this page.

All UK and Irish professional accountancy bodies are governed by the requirements of the Statutory Audit Directive (SAD). In order to comply with the requirements of SAD – and to practise as an auditor – certain elements of UK/Irish legislation and regulation should be examined. The revised Papers SBR (UK/IRL) and AAA (UK/IRL) fully meet regulatory and business environment requirements for those wishing to obtain the UK/Irish audit qualification and hence practise as a registered auditor in the UK/Ireland.
