Fast Track service

Our unique Fast Track service provides a guaranteed response of your qualification assessment within two business days of receiving your application.

Our Fast Track service can be used if you've completed -

  • a 12 unit Master of Professional Accounting (MPA) studied at an Australian university, after an underpinning undergraduate degree
  • an undergraduate degree studied at an Australian university
  • all 16 units of an MPA degree, studied at an Australian university

If you have studied an Australian degree, but currently live overseas, you can still take advantage of the Fast Track option. 


The current price of a fast track application is $660 (including GST) for applicants based in Australia, or $600 for applicants currently based outside Australia.

Important note for Pearson PTE holders

If you're applying for a Fast Track service, and you're submitting Pearson PTE English results, please authorise the IPA to receive your PTE results before you submit your application.

Verification by Pearson can take up to three business days to reach us once you have authorised the report.  We cannot provide you with your outcome letter until verification is received by us.
