Description

The Master of Professional Accounting (Advanced) program is designed for students with a degree in a field other than accounting who wish to obtain a sound introduction to accounting concepts and procedures.  The program will encompass studies in financial and management accounting, finance, taxation, business law and auditing.

Study a Language

All domestic students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities.

Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.

International students cannot enrol concurrently in the Diploma in Languages alongside their primary program unless they can complete both programs within the duration of their primary program CoE. For more information please contact the ESOS Student Compliance Unit ESOS@newcastle.edu.au.
