CPA Accreditation

CPA Accreditation

The CPA accredits the Bachelor or Accounting course, and this accreditation is dependent on you completing  all accounting subjects that the CPA has identified as covering all core competencies for its accreditation. These subjects are detailed in the Bachelor of Accounting course structure (marked with a *) and must be completed to obtain CPA accreditation for your course. If you do not complete all of these CPA required subjects, then your degree will not be recognised by the CPA. Note: 'completion' means that you either a) enrolled in the CPA subject and completed it at UBSS, or b) were granted an exemption (credit transfer) by UBSS staff based on previous study that covered the same subject content at a comparable level. Further explanation is provided in the UBSS Academic Policies & Procedures manual.

Note that CPA accreditation means that when you graduate (having completed the core competencies and 24 subjects of the Bachelor of Accounting degree), you will be eligible for Associate Membership status with the CPA. To obtain membership status (and put CPA after your name), you will be also required to complete the CPA professional program after graduation. Details are on the CPA  Australia website
