Program description

Bachelor of Accounting

The Bachelor of Accounting supports you in discovering how to use accounting to understand business reality and be relevant in a 'digitally disrupted' accounting and business world; and in this way change your own lives and those around you. We do this by creating for you interactive and collaborative places so that, wherever you are, you can learn actively on our campuses across Australia and online in a personal, flexible way as part of your total life.

The Bachelor of Accounting provides you with a degree that is accredited by CPA Australia, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ) and Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and meets the associate membership requirements of the Institute of Public Accountants (IPA). Depending on the electives you choose, you may also be eligible to apply for registration with the Tax Practitioners Board (after meeting the Board's requirements for practical experience). Graduates are also eligible to join the Association of Taxation and Management Accountants at the member level.

As well as providing you with an accredited accounting degree, you also have the opportunity of completing a major (or one or two minors) from a number of other business and non-business disciplines.

AQF Level: Level 7 Bachelor Degree
