The basis of our assessment strategy is to provide you with the means to demonstrate that you have the knowledge and skills to undertake real-world activities to a current industry standard. In each subject there is a similar pattern of assessment. There are specific assessment tasks such as projects, case studies and reports, there will be an interview with your tutor, and an online final exam. To pass each subject, you must successfully complete all the tasks set for you. Importantly, you will also be graded on your skills (where appropriate) such as communication, problem-solving, leadership, organizing and planning and teamwork. These skills are critical in distinguishing yourself in job interviews and in the workplace.
This course covers basic and underlying accounting principles so as not to disadvantage students who have not previously worked in the field. If you are a mature aged student or have completed previous study or have some professional experience in business, accounting or other related fields, then you may be able to apply for direct entry to the Advanced Diploma in Accounting.
