    Social and environmental issues are reshaping businesses around the globe, making sustainable business practice a major part of the way they operate. In a world first, USQ has developed a bachelor-level accounting degree designed around the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the international standard for business sustainability reporting. In an age of carbon taxes, and cap and trade schemes, this program provides you with the knowledge to transition businesses into the low carbon global economy.

    Through the degree you will gain the skills to manage the technical aspects of the economic, social and environmental impacts of business activities – the Triple Bottom Line (TBL).

    The accounting courses provide a knowledge-base in financial accounting, management accounting, business law and finance. The sustainable business courses provide the knowledge and skills you require to meet the needs of organisations to strategically manage and report their environmental and social impacts on the community, as well as provide them with an understanding of the principles and practices associated with carbon accounting and carbon tax/emissions trading systems.

    In addition, the degree provides you with the necessary broad-based administrative and management skills required by organisations to compete in the global economic environment.


    Australia requirements for international students

    In Australia each institution has its own application procedures and admission requirements so il would be better to contact your chosen university for an application form. To study here you'll need to apply for both admission to an institution and also for a student visa from the Australian Government so it's necessery to carefully check student visa information on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).

    Entry requirements can include: the academic requirements, evidence of funds to support your study and overseas student health cover. The academic requirements you need to study in Australia depend on the level of education you want to study. Indeed, in some cases, you may need to present your results of an English language test. 

    You can choose up to six courses in your application. Each university you've applied to consider your application separately. This means that you may receive an offer from each course that you include in your application.
