About

Designed for non-accounting graduates, this full time eight month conversion Accounting conversion course from Trinity College Dublin fast tracks students towards becoming a qualified accountant and focuses on the fundamentals of financial accounting, management accounting, corporate finance, audit, taxation and related areas. 

Overview

The Accounting conversion course from Trinity College Dublin provides significant exemptions from the examinations of professional accountancy bodies. It is fully accredited by ACCA, Chartered Accountants Ireland and CIMA.

In eight months of study, graduates attain the following professional exemptions:

  • ACCA: All 9 Papers at the Applied Knowledge and Applied Skills levels (formerly known as Papers F1 to F9)
  • Chartered Accountants Ireland (ACA): Full CAP 1 exemption;
  • CIMA: Papers BA1-BA4, E1, P1, F1 and P2

Expert faculty and practitioners from Big-4 accountancy firms combine to deliver modules, grounded in the academia-practice link that underpins the entire programme. As the economy continues to recover and grow, so does the demand for accounting professionals. Guest speakers from ACCA, CAI (ACA), CIMA and other accountancy bodies advise on your next steps in the accountancy profession.

Ireland is one of the only European countries to provide a two year graduate work visa. The Irish Third Level Graduate scheme exists to allow legally resident non-EEA third level graduates to remain in Ireland for the purpose of seeking employment and applying for a green card or work permit. Students in training to become fully chartered accountants have the opportunity to apply for a Stamp 1A visa. This visa lasts up to four years and six months.
