PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION

This one-year full-time course offers a postgraduate route to a career in professional accounting. It offers you the chance to complete much of the study and examination requirements involved in qualifying as an accountant. Upon successful completion of all requirements of the course, you will gain full exemption from all but the Final Admitting Examination (FAE) of Chartered Accountants Ireland (CAI).

The course offers more than exemptions. As well as intensive tuition in the core technical materials assessed in the professional examinations, you will gain exposure to the emerging contemporary issues in accounting and finance that will shape your working environment and the future economy. Personal competencies and skills in commercial judgment are also developed to give you a competitive edge as you embark on your career in accounting. 

In addition M Acc graduates qualify for exemption from all papers in part 1 of the AITI Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) qualification

UNIQUE ASPECTS OF THE PROGRAMME

The course prepares you for employment as a trainee accountant and it has been designed with significant contributions from partners, directors and training managers in major accounting firms.

Each of the “Big 4” firms (Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG and PwC) has indicated a willingness to support students who wish to complete the MAcc at UCC prior to undertaking professional training.
