A three-year direct honours programme, our Bachelor of Accountancy degree is recognised as a professional accounting qualification in Singapore by the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA) and the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority. It is also accredited by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia, CPA Australia, Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, for entry into their respective programmes.

Students who complete our Bachelor of Accountancy or Bachelor of Business programme may receive module exemptions from the following professional bodies should they take up post-qualification professional development courses such as the Singapore’s national Chartered Accountant Qualification (SCAQ) administered by ISCA to name one.
