Cengage Education's Bachelor of Accounting, in association with the National Institute of Accountants (NIA), is a fully accredited and recognized higher education degree in accounting and finance by distance education. Successful completion of this degree provides the required knowledge and skills to start, or enhance, a career in accounting.

This fully accredited and recognized higher education award is offered in partnership with the National Institute of Accountants and in association with the Australian Institute of Company Directors, the Australian Institute of Credit Management and the Marketing Association of Australia and New Zealand. The degree provides a direct pathway for vocational graduates into a higher education award, and is recognized by the International Federation of Accountants.

The type and blend of Units in the curriculum reflects the requirements of the International Federation of Accountants, providing graduates with a high level of international acceptance and mobility.

Units required for completion:

Students must complete 24 of the available 26 Units to graduate with the Bachelor of Accounting, unless granted exemptions for Advanced Standing or Recognition of Prior Learning.

Areas of study:

The Bachelor of Accounting degree course is divided into four broad discipline strands. Each strand consists of Units in the related disciplines of accounting, finance, law and management. All applicants who have completed TAFE or other post-secondary studies in bookkeeping or accounting are eligible to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning. Cengage Education also recognizes professional experience in relevant disciplines, so some applicants may receive recognition for on-the-job learning.

Students may choose to take a Minor in their first year. If students take the Marketing Minor, they must complete the Introduction to Marketing Unit and the Marketing of Financial Services Unit. Students taking the Corporate Governance Minor must complete the Foundations of Corporate Governance Unit and the Issues in Contemporary Regulation and Governance Unit. Students may not take both Minors. All other Units are compulsory, unless exemptions are granted.

Course Duration and Attendance Requirements:

Many students will be juggling study with commitments such as work, travel or managing a family. You simply decide how many Units (if any) you wish to study over a given time.

Students taking the full degree with 24 Units can complete the Bachelor of Business or Bachelor of Accounting within three years by taking eight Units a year (equivalent of full-time). The combined Bachelor of Accounting / Bachelor Business degree is traditionally completed over four years.

Once a Unit commences, you have four weeks to decide whether to continue or defer the Unit to a future date with the flexible option of five enrollment dates each year in which to commence study.

Because your Course is delivered online and all your resources are available electronically 24 hours a day, there are no requirements to attend lectures or tutorials. You decide where and when you study*.
*Some Units and APD Courses require you to organize a supervised or ‘invigilated’ examination and you may be required to attend a specific location for the duration of the examination.
