Course details

Summary

The Bachelor of Accountancy programme will give you the knowledge and technical skills needed to analyse accounting and business problems. You will gain a solid foundation in accounting and finance rounded out with the all-important inter-personal and technical skills, knowledge and critical thinking essential for success in today’s business environment. You’ll understand how best to communicate and use financial information to support business decisions.

The BAcc degree will also give you an understanding of the legal and regulatory environment that commercial organisations and accounting professionals must work within. You'll learn to identify and evaluate ethical dilemmas and provide logical ways to resolve them.

When you graduate, you'll be able to demonstrate self-directed and independent learning. You'll communicate effectively through speech, writing, and multiple forms of media, and you'll be able to measure, analyse and communicate information about economic transactions and events in the global economy.

Finally, you'll learn the concepts and processes needed to protect, validate and attest to the integrity and reliability of accounting information.

The BAcc degree includes a solid foundation of compulsory courses, but it also provides some flexibility to choose courses for yourself. It's a specialized degree that can lead to an accountancy career and membership in one or more of the professional accounting organisations.

All BAcc courses are worth 15 credits each and full-time students usually take courses to the value of 120 credits each year.
