Overview

Why choose this degree? To become a professional accountant, you need to successfully complete three levels of professional exams as well as on-thejob training. 

If you successfully complete the BA Accounting and Finance, at the Maynooth University you will be exempt from the first level of these professional examinations (CAP1 examinations Chartered Accountants Ireland and equivalent examinations from ACCA, CIMA and CPA professional accounting bodies).

If you complete the Masters in Accounting at Maynooth, you will be exempt from the second level of these examinations. You will then only have to take one level of professional exams and complete on-the-job training to qualify as an accountant.

You also have the option of taking a four year degree with a work placement or study year abroad, thus combining what you learn in university with insights into industry or another culture.
