Non-accountancy Degree Holders

The Institute recognizes the important contribution of non-accountancy degree holders who wish to join the accountancy profession. To satisfy the pre-entry educational requirement, non-accountancy degree holders are required to fill the technical knowledge gap by successfully completing a conversion programme.

The competency requirements for accountancy degrees and conversion programmes have been enhanced. The competency set consists of two parts: technical competencies and generic qualities. It defines the knowledge, values and skills that candidates should possess at the point of admission into the QP.

The technical competency requirements are set in the following areas:

  • Financial accounting
  • Auditing
  • Information management
  • Management accounting
  • Finance
  • Taxation


The generic competency requirements are set in the following areas:

  • Intellectual qualities
    (information technology proficiency, language proficiency, analytical thinking and problem solving)

  • Commercial qualities
    (commercial acumen and China focus, creativity and change orientation)
  • Intrapersonal qualities
    (integrity and professionalism, drive and resilience, execution and result orientation)
  • Interpersonal qualities
    (leadership and teamwork, communication and relationship building)


In respect of each of these fields, special attention has been directed to the relevant aspects of communications, ethics, information technology, and mainland China and international accounting and business.

Coverage of accountancy degrees and conversion programmes which meet the graduate competency standards for QP admission are set out here. Consistent with degree level qualification, the graduate competency standards for QP admission are benchmarked at the Education Bureau’s Qualification Framework Level 5.
