Accounting Al is compulsory for all first year BEd (Secondary) Business Studies and BSocSc (InfoMgt) students. Accounting A3 is compulsory for any students intending to complete a major in Accounting.

Students in the BSocSc (InfoMgt) course who do not intend to complete a major or sub-major in Accounting must undertake Accounting A4.

These subjects are available to students in other streams of the BEd (Secondary) course (except Environmental Science). There are no prerequisites.

The course is designed on the assumption that students have no background in Accounting. A range of Accounting B and C subjects is offered in later years. The prerequisite for Accounting B-level subjects is Accounting A3, and for Accounting C- level subjects is Accounting B11 and B22. In order to take Method of Teaching: Accounting, students must have completed Accounting A and Accounting B11 and B22. However, the completion of Accounting C- level subjects will provide a three-year specialisation which is an advantage for both teaching and the field of Business.
