UPDATE REGARDING SEMESTER 1 2021  

Due to the impact of COVID-19 this year and the subsequent shift in CPA Program dates, enrolments for Semester 1 2021 will open before Semester 2 2020 exam results have been released. Enrolling early allows you access to a digital version of your study guide, so you are able to review your subject content at your own pace.

If you are undertaking an exam in Semester 2 2020 and wish to await your result before selecting your next subject,  we encourage you to enrol after the official results release date (Friday 11 December). If you choose to enrol before results are released and change your mind about your subject selection, please be reassured that you are able to swap or cancel your enrolment at no extra fee until Wednesday 6 January. Whether you enrol before results have been released or afterwards, we assure you that you will have ample time for study and exam scheduling in the lead up to Semester 1 2021 exams.
