Master of Commerce (MCom) in Accounting
The Master of Commerce (MCom) degree allows for the development of individual research.
MCom students have the opportunity to contribute to existing fields of knowledge or to begin to develop new areas of research through writing of a thesis. The completion of a thesis aids in the development of strong research, analytical, intuitive and communication skills.
The MCom can be pursued by a combination of papers and thesis, or by thesis only.
Papers and thesis
Students who have a good Bachelor's degree (or equivalent qualification) will complete the MCom by papers and thesis (at least two years' full-time study). The first year consists of a selection of papers worth 144 points, equivalent to a PGDipCom.
Students who have a good Honours degree or a PGDipCom (or equivalent qualification) can complete the MCom by thesis only (minimum one year).
Admission to the MCom programme
Students are required to gain approval from the Head of Department and admission is determined by academic merit.
Students apply for admission to the MCom by completing the application form available at the Department Reception.
