UTS – Year 12 studentsRound 1 applications for Bachelor of Accounting 2022

Early closing date on Friday 21 May 2021

 The UTS Bachelor of Accounting has the aim of producing potential business leaders of the future via an accounting career. Bethany College has had seven students graduate from this prestigious program!

The main benefits to students who are selected into the Bachelor of Accounting are a tax-free scholarship valued at $54,000, a year of full-time work training, and great career prospects with the major employers who support the course. No BAcc graduate has ever missed out on a job, and these job offers are generally made by April of the students’ third and final year of study.

Other key benefits of this program, that set it apart from cadetships or other co-op courses, are that it takes only 3 years to complete and that students in the course study, work and play together as a close group of friends throughout that time. Email   carin.alberts@uts.edu.au

Women in Trades Needed – Billions To Be Added to Our Economy

A shortage of skilled workers in various trades and industries was already predicted for the next decade even before the virus hit and it’s since become clear that rethinking “business as usual” is a priority. Encouraging higher female participation in trade industries and in the uptake of apprenticeships or traineeships will not only help to combat future skills shortages but could also create new opportunities for women to deal with the unique economic challenges they face due to the impacts of the virus.
