A Professional Year Program (PYP) provides international students a combination of both formal educational development, as well as work experience in their area of studies after graduating from an Australian university.
The Stanley College Accounting Professional Program (PYP) is developed and approved by CPA Australia, the Institute of Public Accountants and the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand.
