This is a 1 year intensive conversion course designed so as to mirror in terms of standard and complexity the critical areas of the accounting syllabi of a 3 year undergraduate accounting programme. Graduates will, on successful completion of the programme, have entitlement to CAP1 exemptions from Chartered Accountants Ireland. Successful graduates also have exemption from F1 to F7 and F9 of the ACCA professional xaminations, and equivalent exemptions from other Accounting Bodies. Graduates are very well placed to enter the work force as a trainee accountant with just two sets of professional exams required to complete to qualify as a chartered accountant. Successful graduates from the programme will have an option of enrolling for the 1 year Masters in Accounting at Maynooth University, the successful completion of which, will enable them to qualify for exemptions from a further level of examinations (CAP 2) of the Institute of Chartered Accountants.

"Completing the Higher Diploma in Accounting at MU was pivotal to my career. I applied for a training contract in each of the top 4 accountancy firms prior to completing the HDip. in MU, however I was unsuccessful in even getting an interview. Fast forward one year and not only was I asked to interview but I received offers from the same firms. The only difference was completing this course. The course content along with the support of staff gave me the knowledge and confidence to take the next step in my career. I would recommend anyone contemplating a career in accounting or finance to consider this course."
