English is not a my first language, can I write my exam in my native language?
We have large numbers of students from all over the world studying ICA diplomas and for many of them, English is not their first language. We do require that the exam is written in English and that you can evidence a good competency of written English language.
I requested a mentor some time ago and I have not been allocated anyone yet, why is this?
Most mentors are past students who volunteer their time to help others through the course. It can take some time for us to get in contact with them or sometimes they may have external factors such as work pressures which mean they are currently unable to act as a mentor. As a consequence it can sometimes take a couple of weeks to find someone suitable as we may have to ask more than one person. Alternatively you can have a mentor who is someone you know already such as a line manager or industry colleague. Simply contact us to let us know who your mentor is and we will provide them with guidelines.
How can I become a member of the ICA?
There are two routes to professional membership of the ICA. On completion of an ICA Diploma you can apply for membership, or if you are a very senior practitioner, you can apply for the 'Experienced Practitioner' route. More information can be found here.
