Programme Code: CBA08
You will also take introductory courses in Economics, Commercial Law, Mathematics and Statistics, and Accounting Information Systems.
The curriculum is fully compliant with international accounting education requirements, as well as those of the following boards:
- South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA)
- Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors Board
- International Federation of Accountants (IFAC)
Once you’ve completed your BAccSc, you will need to complete a Higher Diploma in Accounting (HDipAcc), which is a one-year, full-time postgraduate programme. If you successfully complete the HDipAcc, you will be eligible to write the SAICA qualifying exams (otherwise known as Board Exams).
The exams are written in two parts and you will need to complete a three-year training contract in the accountancy profession (Training in Public Practice) or in commerce and industry (Training Outside Public Practice). After writing your first exam, you will need to choose a specialist course in either Financial Management or Auditing. You will then write the second qualifying exam. Once you have successfully completed both exams, you will be eligible to register as a chartered accountant with SAICA.
