Extend your existing accounting skills and maximise your employment opportunities in accounting

When studying the Diploma of Accounting FNS50217, you will develop advanced skills in areas such as income tax, management accounting, budgeting and forecasting, performance analysis, financial reporting and leadership.

This program is designed for individuals who want to undertake further studies in accounting after completing entry level studies in the Certificate IV of Accounting and Bookkeeping FNS40217. It introduces students to a range of common accounting specialist job roles and provides the basis for articulation into the Advanced Diploma of Accounting FNS60217.

Once you complete this course, you’ll qualify to be accredited by the Institute of Public Accountants (IPA) and the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT).

Those gaining employment after the course are likely to work as bookkeepers/BAS agents, assistant accountants, payroll officers or accounts clerks.

Graduates from the Diploma are encouraged to undertake the Advanced Diploma of Accounting FNS60217, if they wish to pursue a career as a tax agent, or if they wish to undertake higher education studies in a Bachelor of Accounting program.
