Course content

This is a one year full time programme designed for honours graduates who may not have taken major accounting specialisms in their undergraduate studies, but who wish to pursue a professional accounting qualification.

The programme modules are being designed so as to mirror in terms of standard and complexity the syllabi of the CAP 1 examinations of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland. One of the principal objectives of the programme is that graduates will, on successful completion of the programme, have entitlement to CAP 1 exemptions and equivalent exemptions from other professional accountancy bodies.

Course co-ordinators will work closely with the professional accountancy bodies to ensure that the content and direction of all course modules also help prepare students for the final stages of the professional accounting examinations.
