Philip Turnbull, Chief Executive said: ‘The digital age is presenting exciting opportunities for those operating in the education arena, and embracing the developments of technology for the benefit of our students is a primeobjective.

‘70% of our student population is now on-line. This has resulted in a major change in the delivery format of the study courses being demanded by individuals. Market research undertaken by the AIA to date has demonstrated that there is a great call for delivery of on-line courses, and as far as I am aware the AIA is the first UK accountancy body to officially announce its intention to launch an on-line programme commencing in 2000’
