FNS60217 Advanced Diploma of Accounting West Australian Institute of Further Studies


Course info


Course Outline:

Our Advanced Diploma of Accounting will best suit you if you are already working in the accounting field and seeking professional identification. It will provide you with the opportunity to enhance and refine your skills in relation to manual and computerised bookkeeping, financial management, auditing, taxation, as well as applying economical principles to work in the financial services industry.


After successful completion of this course, you will have the opportunity to continue your studies at an Australian university and may be able to apply for advanced standing in the degree course of your choice. The level of articulation may vary between universities, so you are advised to apply to the universities of your choice well in advance of completion of your qualification at WAIFS.

Furthermore, WAIFS has an articulation pathway with Murdoch University. This means that if you chose to study WAIFS Diploma of Accounting + WAIFS Advanced Diploma of Accounting, you can continue on and study a Bachelor of Business (B1318) studying in Accounting OR a Double Major in Accounting and Finance at Murdoch University in 2 years instead of 3 years.

WAIFS also has an affiliation with IPA (Institute of Public Accountants), the membership body for accountants, who offers accounting graduates significantly discounted professional memberships to students in order to provide support whilst transitioning from Student to Associate Member in their early career years.

The full IPA Program is made up of two stages:

Stage One: WAIFS Advanced Diploma of Accounting graduates will only need to complete 2 units instead of 6 units to achieve full IPA membership.

Stage Two: To gain a Master of Business Administration from Deakin University, students will only have to study 6 units.
