About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

This qualification is designed to satisfy the completion of the academic requirements for applicants seeking to become Chartered Accountants with the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants (NZICA) or to become Certified Practising Accountants with CPA Australia.
The academic requirements to become a Chartered Accountant with NZICA (CAANZ) or a Certified Practising Accountant with CPA Australia involve the completion of three years of degree level study amounting to 360 credits. There is also a requirement that a body of knowledge defined in the terms of learning outcomes for ten topics (see Appendix 8) are also completed. Although the current Bachelor of Applied Management (Accounting major) satisfies these requirements, there are some students either from overseas or who have completed degrees in New Zealand, who have not completed all the learning outcomes required in order to continue on to become a Chartered Accountant and/or a Certified Practising Accountant. The aim of this programme is to meet their study requirements.
