If you are a high achieving school leaver and believe you could be one of Australia’s future business leaders, then the Bachelor of Accounting cooperative education scholarship program has been designed just for you. The Bachelor of Accounting provides you with a multi-skilled accounting degree with strong emphasis on both accounting and financial management, both essential business tools.
Graduates from the Bachelor of Accounting degree are some of the most highly sought after employees in the country. With twelve months of full-time experience working in the accounting field for some of Australia’s largest and most respected firms, and a thorough education in all aspects of business as well as finely honed communication and leadership skills, the opportunities this program offers are second to none.
All students in the course receive a tax free scholarship worth over $46,500, paid out over two and a half years of the degree. We take in 30-35 students each year, and this cohort progresses through the degree together, forming a close peer network which will be invaluable to you throughout your university years and well into your career. This is consolidated by a 6 week fast-track period at the beginning of your first year which introduces you to UTS and the business world, covers two subjects as part of your accelerated degree, and gets you involved in a range of social activities and trips as you get to know your classmates and teachers.
The Bachelor of Accounting has been designed as a joint venture between UTS Business School and Australia’s premier business employers, to specifically address the needs of the industry. Sponsor organisations work closely with the university to ensure that all courses are relevant, up-to-date and encouraging the most innovative and forward-thinking approaches to business as a whole, through a focus on accounting as a fundamental skill required to understand the workings of a company. The senior management of these companies are also invested in conducting guest lectures and working closely with the internship students they take on through the cooperative agreement, meaning your experience in the university and in the workplace will give you unique insight at all levels.
