The purpose of this bridging programme is to provide degree students with a strong and academically sound knowledge of International Financial Reporting Standards, governance and control, and taxation for students who do not adhere to the strict admission criteria of UJ’s Bachelor of Commerce Honours programmes in Accountancy, or in Taxation or in Internal Auditing so that they may pursue post-graduate studies in order to ultimately qualify as professional accountants, tax consultants or internal auditors.
UJ students – Bachelors of Accounting or BCom (Accounting) degree:
students must have previously passed Accounting 300;
students must have previously passed Accounting 3A and Accounting 3B.
Non-UJ students and UJ students that do not hold a BCom (Accounting) degree:
A completed degree that is Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC) accredited; and an appropriate background and prior knowledge (typically on NQF level 7) for Accounting 3A and 3B, Auditing 3A and 3B and Taxation 3A and 3B).
The Department of Accounting has developed a subsidised Advanced Diploma in Accountancy that provides students in possession of an appropriate National Diploma or Diploma an opportunity to articulate into an honour’s degree.
