What is the CA Masters pathway?

The CA Masters Pathway is a new way to complete CA Program modules. CA ANZ has partnered with a number of universities across Australia and New Zealand. Eligible candidates will be able to complete the CA Program modules in their final year of their Masters degree. Our partner universities will provide teaching for all non-CA program subjects, while the CA Program modules will be delivered and assessed by CA ANZ.

Candidates who complete their CA Program study via this pathway will be awarded a Masters qualification by the partner university and will not qualify for CA ANZ's Graduate Diploma of Chartered Accounting award.

Partner Universities and Eligibility Criteria

Candidates must meet the degree requirements with the Partner University as well as meeting our Required Competency Areas for the Technical Modules/Core Subjects.

They must also meet both the Partner University and the CA ANZ IELTS requirements.
