Important changes to the IPA Program
View the FAQs.
The IPA Program gives accounting graduates the tools and skills
they need to become a qualified accountant.
The IPA has partnered with the University of New England (UNE)
to deliver the IPA Program by online distance learning. The
teaching staff are drawn from UNE's Graduate School of Business and
School of Law.
This joint initiative between the IPA and UNE allows you to
balance personal and work commitments, by letting you learn at your
own pace, fitting study around your family commitments and busy
times at work.
Unlike other accounting associations, our subjects are not fixed
but tailored to your career path, allowing you to study the
subjects which are most relevant to you.
The IPA Program consists of two components:
- Graduate Certificate in Professional Accounting (GCPA)
- Master of Commerce (Professional Accounting)
The IPA Program is delivered over three trimesters or teaching
periods per year.
Please note that changes to the IPA Program structure will come
into effect for all students commencing in Trimester 1 2013.
