You are encouraged to enrol in courses for both First Semester and Second Semester.  You will be able to change your enrolment in courses up until Monday of week 2 of each semester without penalty.

Academic Advice

Before applying for any exemptions towards the program, students (except the ANU students) should include an assessment of their qualification completed by either CPA Australia or the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia. If you are eligible for exemptions, you will need to substitute courses that you get exemptions with CBE electives. Please note students will not receive any credit unless they are a full CPA or a CA.

If after reading through these guidelines you are still unsure about your which courses to enrol in, you can seek an academic advice during Orientation week and the first week of each semester, or contact your program convenor, Dr Rebecca Tan.
