Higher Certificate in Accountancy

  • This qualification will give access to learners who would not have direct access to diploma entry, the opportunity to study further in the field of accountancy.
  • After successful completion of the Higher Certificate in Accoutancy, students can leave the university to pursue careers as bookkeepers; while those with an average mark of 60% and higher in the Higher Certificate may apply for entry to the Diploma in Accountancy.
