What is an Advanced Diploma of Accounting?

With so many qualification levels to choose from, it can be hard to determine which courses are right for you. An Advanced Diploma is one of the highest courses you can do before an Undergraduate degree and covers all the necessary information you need in detail. Normally taking a year to two years to complete, it’s a great way for anyone new to the area of accounting to get all the relevant expertise you’ll need to start off a successful career in the industry. An Advanced Diploma is often more specialised than a general Diploma course and is perfect to get the competitive edge. An Advanced Diploma of Accounting can lead to many exciting careers, so whether you’re just starting out, looking to upskill or are an aspiring career changer; there’s no better qualification to start a career in Accounting.

There’s usually no formal requirements needed to study Accounting at this level, however previous experience or education in the area can sometimes be considered for Recognition of Prior Learning, which can lessen your time spent studying. Unlike the investment in time and money needed for Bachelor Degree’s, an Advanced Diploma provides a comprehensive look at accounting practices, in half the time. Advanced Diplomas are perfect for budding professionals, improving your skills in areas of presentations, report generation, verbal communication and analysis which are easily transferable to just about every career path.
