A forum for international accounting and finance students to learn about CPA Australia and the opportunities available when studying in New Zealand or other parts of the world.
We are working in several markets to bolster career pathways:
CPA Australia has collaborated with PwC on an internship program in which 30 high-achieving graduates from Australian universities were selected to join the PwC internship program and undertake the CPA Program at the same time.
CPA Australia's first tuition provider in India was launched in Bangalore. Members can now access quality tuition for our CPA Program in India without travelling overseas.

The Board reviews CPA Australia membership and program pricing every year – considering barriers to entry, flexibility, choice, competition and creating a sustainable future. For the third consecutive year, CPA Australia membership fees have remained at the same level.
Value is enhanced in 2019 by the complimentary CPD offering that is included in the membership fee, and which allows members to meet their CPD requirement.
