The new MAcc Advanced Accounting with Placement programme at Queen’s University Belfast has been awarded CAP 2 exemptions from Chartered Accountants Ireland. This is a significant milestone for this new programme, which is unique in the UK and Ireland and the first integrated undergraduate programme (combining undergraduate and Masters-level study in one four year course) to secure CAP 2 exemptions.


These exemptions offer students a significant head start in their career as an accountant and are highly prized by employers.


The MAcc Advanced Accounting with Placement offers:

  • a final Masters-level qualification, with students paying undergraduate fees in each of the four years;
  • exemption from Chartered Accountants Ireland CAP1 and CAP2 exams and maximum permitted exemptions from other professional bodies;
  • a paid work-based placement during Semester Two of Year Four, together with a work-related research project;
  • an alternative exit point after three years, with students awarded BSc Accounting.
