Exemption

Qualification assessment

Apply for a qualification assessment by completing the Application Form, if:

  • Your Australian accounting degree is not an Institute accredited course

  • There is no available accredited course list for the year you commenced 

  • You are unsure whether your degree subject passes cover the core knowledge areas.

Assessment applications must be lodged no later than one month prior to the enrolment opening date of your chosen Program module.

When the assessment is complete, the Institute will send you a letter of assessment.

If you have not met all core knowledge areas, the assessment letter will indicate which subjects require further study.

You will then need to enrol in an Institute accredited course of your choice and pass the missing subjects, which will then permit you to enrol in the Chartered Accountants Program.

To be eligible for exemption of modules in the CRA Program, applicants need to submit verified and true copy of evidences including but not limit to:

  • a copy of your CV or resume showing at least 3 years work experience;

  • a certified or notarized copy of identification (e.g. passport or birth certificate or driver's license);

  • certified or notarized copies of your academic records;

  • evidence of English Language Proficiency if previous studies were not in English

  • a certified or notarized copy of identification (e.g. passport or birth certificate or driver's license);
