  • You can take subjects concurrently, provided the prerequisites are met. (Please ensure you understand the time commitments for each subject before enrolling in multiple subjects).
  • It is recommended that candidates enrol in a maximum of two (2) course subjects each term (plus Ethics and Business in Term 1) for a good study workload balance - (providing time to balance study and work, get a good night's sleep and it may help with study success).

CA Program candidates who decide during their studies that they do not wish to complete the CA Program required to become a CA and wish to exit the course early, may be eligible to apply for the award of a Graduate Certificate in Accounting (GradCertAcc) depending on subjects completed. To be eligible to exit early with the award of GradCertAcc candidates must have successfully completed at least 60 credit points made up of a minimum of 51 core credit points of the parent GradDipCA course. This translates to completion of either five (5) core subjects including Ethics and Business or four (4) core subjects including Ethics and Business and 1 elective subject.
