Overall, CIPFA registered 300 new students, and the body expects around three quarters of these to qualify. In 2000, CIPFA saw registrations grow by 22% over the year, totalling 670 for the UK, compared with 550 in 1999.
The body, which allows members of other bodies to become dual-qualified, introduced a revamped professional qualification in the autumn of 1999.
CIPFA said interest among qualified accountants had proved very strong and added that it was on target for 120 registrations during the year.
