The degree programme, which has within just a few years gained the trust and popularity among youth as well as parents and employers has already witnessed the graduation of over 220 local and foreign students, who are now employed at leading organizations in both Sri Lanka and overseas.

The three year programme, which is the only applied accounting degree offered in Sri Lanka  is conducted by an eminent panel of lecturers from state universities as well as industry experts representing leading organisations.

CA Sri Lanka, which is the preferred and recognized destination for accountancy education in the country, is the only professional body in Sri Lanka that offers a recognised degree programme as well as a professional qualification in accountancy. Due to the recognition from the University Grants Commission, students who follow the BSc. Applied Accounting degree also enjoys the same recognition enjoyed by state university graduates.

The two-year internship offered through this degree programme is part of the programme that adds more value and quality to the entire programme. The internship ensures that graduates enter the workplace with practical experience and clear insights into demands of the workplace.

The BSc. Applied Accounting degree has also been internationally accredited from highly respected accounting organisations such as the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and CPA Australia.

Students who follow the BSc. Applied Accounting also have the option of completing one or two years of the degree in Sri Lanka and enroll at La Trobe University or Deakin University in Australia and complete the degree, along with the option of also completing a Masters’ Degree.

Registrations are now on for the September 2018 intake of the BSc. Applied Accounting degree of CA Sri Lanka.

Students with passes in three subjects (in any subject stream) at the GCE Advanced Level (Sri Lanka) examination or any foreign qualification equivalent to the GCE Advanced Level Examination in Sri Lanka (Edexcel/Cambridge) can register for the degree programme. Registration is also available for students with pending A/L results as well.

CA Sri Lanka has also taken steps to arrange for loan facilities for students in order for them to pay for the programme. Further, students from non-commerce streams can also enroll for this degree, as prior knowledge in accounting is not a prerequisite, thereby offering greater flexibility and the opportunity to obtain a recognised qualification in the field of accountancy.

The degree programme also offers exemptions for professional qualifications such as CA Sri Lanka, CIMA, ACCA, SLIATE, HNDs and AAT and is offered at full time and part time basis.
