Exemption Criteria - Bachelor of Commerce

To claim exemptions from any part of CA Proficiency 1 (CAP1), candidates must achieve a minimum of a 2.ii honours degree. A clear pass without compensation in all relevant subjects is required and candidates must meet the criteria for individual subject exemptions. Details of the criteria are available from the university.   

 * If a semester has been studied abroad, we will require a letter from UCD confirming the equivalent subjects were completed. (This letter is not relevant for UCD BComm (International) Graduates, as the business courses studied during the Academic Year Abroad, are not designated by UCD.)
