Flexible entry options

We offer flexible entry requirements so that you have more options to gain entry to the CA Program

In Brief

  • Complete CA Program subjects while not in employment
  • Start CA Program subjects while completing your final bridging units
  • Benefit from the improved CA Foundations Pathway
  • Study concurrent subjects in the CA Program

Study the GradDipCA while not in employment

You can study in the CA Program even if you are not in approved employment*.

This added flexibility suits a range of candidates who find themselves out of approved employment, including graduates who have completed their degree but not yet started work, candidates on parental or extended leave or candidates returning to the workforce.

* Before being eligible for full CA membership, you are still required to complete three years Mentored Practical Experience (MPE) while being employed by an approved employer.

Start MPE before, during or after commencing the GradDipCA

MPE can be undertaken before, during or after completing the required formal education component of the CA Program, but candidates must complete both components within the maximum eight-year provisional membership period to qualify for full CA membership.

Prior experience can be recognised to a maximum of 12 months total; this experience must have been gained within the past six years.

Start CA Program subjects while completing your final bridging units

If you have completed your degree, you can start the CA Program core subjects while completing your final bridging units via CA Foundations or an accredited tertiary course.

Please note that specific prerequisite units associated with individual CA Program core subjects will need to be completed before you can enrol in each core subject.
