Graduate Diploma in Professional Accounting (GradDipPAcc)

Course Code GNPROACC1000
Course Type Postgraduate
Credit Points Required  48
CRICOS code 077102B


The Graduate Diploma in Professional Accounting is based on the master's program but requires the completion of fewer units of study. It is an option for students who do not want to commit to a full master's program in the first instance, but who still wish to gain a solid grounding in their chosen field. In most circumstances, students progress to the Master of Professional Accounting (16 unit program only) on satisfactory completion of the graduate diploma at a standard acceptable to the Business School.

This is a new course available from Semester 1, 2013.
