Details

Accounting knowledge is essential in business, as all managers and executives must understand the importance and significance of accounting reports. Professional accreditation adds to the value of the qualification. Financial planning as a profession is growing in importance and the added skills provided by the program complement the accounting core. Taxation knowledge is integral to both accounting and financial planning.  

The Bachelor of Accounting at Western Sydney University is unique in its scope and coverage, offering a qualification in accounting and, in combination with available specialisations, in financial planning and taxation.

The course satisfies the pre-admission educational requirements to CPA Australia, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, and the Institute of Public Accountants (PA). In addition, by completing available specialisations within the program, students will be eligible to apply for membership of the Financial Planning Association (FPA) and to be considered for registration with the Tax Practitioners Board as a registered tax agent.

This degree will be offered at the new Parramatta City campus, 169 Macquarie Street, Parramatta.
