Bachelor of Accountancy


Overview

The Accountancy professional major trains students to be qualified, competent and confident accountants. It equips them with strong academic and professional knowledge and skills in key subjects such as accounting, assurance and attestation, law, taxation and information technology. At the same time, students will also receive training in general business knowledge so that they will appreciate the business environment inside and outside the organisation.

The Bachelor of Accountancy Degree is recognised by the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority. The Singapore Accountancy Commission (SAC) has also accredited the Bachelor of Accountancy Degree for direct entry to the Singapore Qualification Programme.

Accountancy (Work-Study)

The Accountancy Work-Study programme follows similar structure to the Accountancy programme and enjoys the same accreditation. The only difference is that students in the Accountancy (Work-Study) undertake the following:

  • 2 Work Attachments (instead of 1)
  • More combination of both day-time and evening classes
  • Students will complete a specially customised course to fulfill their mandatory overseas experience and service learning requirements.

In addition, students in the work-study programme will receive a 20 CU credit recognition for the SUSS core unrestricted electives at the completion of the work attachment requirement.

You can only apply and be admitted to either of the Accountancy programmes.

Admission Requirements

The academic admission requirements are: (a) at least three passes in H2 content subjects; or (b) a local polytechnic diploma, an international baccalaureate diploma or a diploma from NUS High School; or (c) an equivalent of (a) or (b). Applicants with (c) have to submit SAT1 scores. There will be additional admission criteria to better target students who are aligned to the educational philosophy of our full-time programmes. This will be done through interviews and selection tests.

Financial Assistance

There are also various types of financial aid available to students who need financial assistance. Please click here for more details.

Programme Structure

Students will start their programme with the Common Curriculum, and conclude their programme with a case study-based strategy course and an applied research project. They will also be required to complete the non-credit but compulsory programme components: overseas experience, work attachment and service-learning/community engagement. Accountancy professional major students are required to complete 200 credit units (cu). MOUs have also been signed with 15 audit firms to provide work attachments for Accountancy students.
