Student profile

“Accounting is the language and basic tool of business. To me, the Master of Professional Accounting is not only a process to become more proficient in this “language” but a degree with a great number of possibilities in my future career route. It provided me with the practical skills and perspective needed to succeed in business, improved my communication skills and gave me the foundation I need to become a CPA.

Attracted by the reputation of the most beautiful campus in Australia, I spent a wonderful time at UWA. While enjoying the beautiful campus as well as excellent research facilities and extensive library resources, there was always a variety of attractive events on - seminars, lunch meetings, or public talks. Furthermore, there are a number of opportunities of campus recruitment from the Big Four, BHP Billiton, Wesfarmers and other outstanding companies around the world.”
