    UTS Bachelor of Accounting (Co-operative Scholarship) 2018

    Hi BoSers!

    With cadetship and scholarship applications opening up soon, I feel like its a good time to start thinking about your university options after the HSC.

    I'm pleased to announce that the UTS Bachelor of Accounting (Co-operative Scholarship) Program, or BAcc, for short, has now opened applications for its 2018 intake

    http://www.bachelorofaccounting.com/

    This is a comprehnsive scholarship program aimed at high-achieving Year 12 students who are interested in pursuing a future career in business

    As a current second-year BAcc, I'm here to provide as much information about BAcc, and answer any questions that you may have about the program, or the university itself.

    Firstly, I would like to advise that you browse the current, and past, cadetship and BAcc threads on here, as they provide a wealth of insight from both students, past and present, as well as industry professionals who can provide you with an accurate insight into the numerous options available to students after the HSC. During Year 12, I was always on here searching for my dream course that would match my career aspirations.

    What is BAcc?

    BAcc is a 3 year business degree, but also allows you the opportunity to undertake 2 six-month, full-time, industry placements at one of our 27 sponsor organisations. The industry of these companies range from accounting, banking, insurance, property, FMCG, insolvency and even forensics! Thus, BAcc will enable you to have the opportunity to experience a years worth of work experience split between 2 of Australia's most highly sought after companies.

    Additionally, BAcc holds a number of networking and social events throughout the year, where you will have the opportunity to become a tightly-knit group of future professionals and interact with professionals from a number of the sponsor companies. Other events such as company presentations, site visits, careers fairs and awards evenings will allow you to gain an insight into accounting and business, by networking with industry professionals and leaders.

    In financial terms, you will also receive a $51,000 tax-free scholarship, over the life of your degree, paid fortnightly! This works out to be $17,000 per year. Also, as a testament to the strength of the program and its hard-working students, there has been a historic graduate employment rate of 95% with students earning a starting salary of $60,000 plus.

    Furthermore, there is the flexibility to tailor the BAcc course to your own specific interests by choosing either a 2nd major (since the Accounting major is compulsory), 2 sub-majors or even a sub-major with electives and the opportunity to go on a 6 month exchange to a number of countries across the world in your 3rd year of the course.

    Why did I choose BAcc?

    Ultimately, this question will vary for everyone, and you will have the opportunity to hear from other students by attending our Information Evening on Tuesday 16th of May at UTS, which you can book through the Bachelor of Accounting website below.
    For me, however, it came back to the amazing tight-knit cohort of approximately 30-35 BAcc students, the amazing internship opportunities and of course, the scholarship.

    Having been in the program for just over a year, I can say that getting into the Bachelor of Accounting Course at UTS was easily one of the best moments of my life and I have not looked back since being accepted.

    I was also fortunate enough to have my 1st placement at a leading global financial services firm in the financial reporting team, which I immensely enjoyed, as I felt a strong sense of purpose coming into work everyday and was given meaningful tasks during my time there. The structure of BAcc and its industry reputation for producing high-quality young professionals allowed me to interact with senior management and make a difference within the team, and ultimately, my organisation. My technical proficiency as well as my personal skills improved significantly during my internship.

    Upon reading all this information about BAcc, I hope you are as excited as I am about the course. I high recommend that you all apply for it as it is truly an opportunity that you can't miss. I didn't think that I would get into the course when I applied for it but I was lucky enough to be accepted and I've enjoyed every minute of it
