Bachelor of Accounting Scholarship



Paid over 3 years





The Bachelor of Accounting is a co-operative education program, being a three-way partnership between the sponsor organisations, UTS and the students.

All students in the Bachelor of Accounting program receive a generous income tax-exempt scholarship per year for 3 years (subject to Recruitment Incentive being paid out), paid in fortnightly instalments.

In addition, all students who are recruited by a sponsor organisation in their final year of study will receive a Recruitment Incentive bonus for the second half of the year.

We welcome applications from recent school leavers all over Australia - the course is not just for Sydney students. Any student who has to move home in order to join the course in Sydney will receive a Relocation Allowance.

Who is eligible?

The Bachelor of Accounting Scholarship is only open to Australian citizens and permanent residents of Australia.

Note that you cannot do both BAcc and a cadetship. If you are interested in pursuing both, read our information regarding cadetships. You must obtain a credit average to continue in the program.

Selection process

Entry to the Bachelor of Accounting is very competitive and is not based on ATAR score alone.

Selection criteria are as follows:

  • Strong interest in an accounting-based career
  • Personal attributes needed to succeed both as a student and in a business career - communication skills, inter-personal skills, team-working skills, problem-solving skills, enthusiasm and dedication
  • Involvement and achievement in a range of activities and interests
  • Demonstrated leadership qualities or potential
  • Academic ability (ATAR of 95 highly desirable but not essential)

Selection of applicants for interview will be based on all 5 of these criteria, as demonstrated in the record of achievements set out in the written Application Form.

Selection of applicants for an offer will be based on the report of the group assessment interview panel. The interview assessment will be focused on Selection Criteria 1 and 2 and final ATAR achieved (selection criteria 5).
