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.
Scholarship payments are:
*$13 500 for the first year of the course; $14 000.00 for the second year of the course $ 7 250.00 for the first half of the third year of the course
Recruitment Incentive $ 7 250.00 for the second half of the third year of the course if applicable.. In addition, all students who are recruited by a sponsor organisation in their final year of study will receive a Recruitment Incentive bonus, and any student who has to move home in order to join the course in Sydney will receive a Relocation Allowance.
The Bachelor of Accounting is only open to Australian citizens and permanent residents of Australia.
We welcome applications from recent school leavers all over Australia – the course is not just for Sydney students.
Note that you can’t 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.
Entry to the Bachelor of Accounting is very competitive and is not based on UAI score alone.
Selection criteria are as follows:

Academic ability (UAI 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 interview panel – with the interview being focused on selection criteria 1 and 2 – and final UAI achieved (selection criteria 5).
Duration: 3 years.
Number per year: 30 offers
