About

This Accounting course at Technological University of the Shannon is a challenging one-year taught programme aimed at preparing business graduates for entry into the accountancy profession. The programme earns generous exemptions from Chartered Accountants Ireland, in that they gain exemption from the CAP 2 series of examinations.

Overview

On the Accounting course at Technological University of the Shannon, students will share experiences and knowledge to maximise learning. AIT has an outstanding record of staff/student engagement which creates a brilliant learning environment.

The programme is intensive with a strong emphasis on self-directed learning.

Modules concentrate on the core accounting modules: management accounting, financial reporting, auditing, taxation and financial management. Students also undertake case studies which involve real-life scenarios incorporating different aspects of accounting.

There is no requirement to complete a dissertation. However, a small project is undertaken.

What opportunities might it lead to?

Most of our graduates initially pursue a career in an accounting practice rather than industry. The majority gain employment with the Big 4 firms.

The vast majority qualify as accountants within 2 years upon graduation and can expect to rise to more senior executive level, in private industry, in the public and private sectors, and in education.

AIT has developed very strong links with accounting practices across the country and the reputation of our past graduates is excellent and we have no doubt future graduates will achieve similar recognition.
