Diploma in the Theory of Accounting

Course Overview

This programme is purposefully designed to prepare students who completed their Accounting degrees (NQF Level 7 or equivalent) at institutions that are not accredited by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in South Africa (SAICA), and/or the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Namibia (ICAN), to enter a Postgraduate Certificate in the Theory of Accounting (PG CTA), which is required by SAICA and ICAN for entry to Part 1 of the Qualifying Examinations (QE1) leading to the Chartered Accountant (Namibia) (CA, NAM). Furthermore, the programme targets students who completed their Accounting degrees (NQF Level 7 or equivalent) at a SAICA/ICAN accredited tertiary institution, but did not qualify for entry into the PG CTA.
