Accounting courses

An Accountant is one of the most required jobs in Australia, so much so that it appears on the SOL LIST. The hard part is to be recognized for your Italian qualification to become registered. The two systems are completely different that’s why those who have an economic degree, need to take another degree in Australia. An easier solution is to enrol in one of the Accounting courses which allows you to be part of the Australian register and practise in the profession.

Italian experience needs to be recognized by CPA Australia. It is best to consult a migration agent who can follow you in your path and help you to present your request. The accounting course is also interesting for those who don’t have an economic degree but have some experience in accounting firms in and want to learn more about the Australian system you can look for a job as a studio as assistant if you are not registered as an accountant.

Once you’ve finished the accounting course you can ask for a Postgraduate visa (subclass 485) that allows you to stay in Australia for another 18 months, working full time in the industry and gaining experience after your studies. If you want to apply for the Postgraduate visa you need to attend the Accounting Course in Australia for two years and pass the IELTS test with a minimum grade of 6 in all sections.
