In order to qualify for the CPA Australia programme, students require:
You can become a CPA regardless of your degree or current path. Of course, it’s helpful if you’ve studied an accounting degree or diploma at university. Similarly, if you’re at school, electing subjects like mathematics and economics will give you a great head start in your accounting education. However, in either case, a qualification in accountancy is not mandatory.
Whatever level you’re at in your accountancy education or career, to become a CPA you’ll need to finish the CPA Program, including three years of practical experience. It’s specifically designed for students and young professionals who are embarking on a career in accounting – regardless of whether you are already an accounting student.
You’ll need to have an individual assessment prior to commencing the CPA Program.
