Degree and Courses to Study for People with Color Blindness

Sharing is caring :)

“What colour is this?” – Does this question annoy you on a different level?  As a person with colour blindness, I can relate to this feeling when my friends would always point out things and expect me to guess the right colour. If I got the colour wrong, I would get laugh at but if I got it right, they’d go on to point out more things for me to guess. Initially, I felt fine, but it’s gotten annoying over time when my friends continuously do that over and over again. I felt as if I was my friends’ entertainment. 

Having that experience with me, I felt my inability to distinguish colours has made it difficult and challenging for me when it comes to deciding the right career. We are restricted to many careers that we dreamed about in our childhood. But despite that, we are completely normal and we can do things that most people with normal colour vision could do too. There are ample careers out there that people like us can thrive. Thus, I wrote this article to inform students with colour blindness that there are opportunities available out there for them to decide.

What is Color Blindness?

To simply put, colour blindness is also known as a colour vision impairment where a certain group of people lack the ability to see or differentiate between certain colours. They tend to get confused with two different but similar colours, for example, mistakenly identifying purple with dark blue or red with green and vice versa.

Colourblindness can either be inherited or acquired later in life.  

  • Inherited color blindness is when people are born with this color vision impairment. The color blindness gene is normally passed down from close family members on the X chromosome, which also explains why men are more affected than women. 
  • Acquired colour blindness affects both men and women equally as they are aged. Diseases damaging the optic nerve or the retina of the eye can lead to acquired colour blindness. 

The common misconception about colour blindness is that people think that the world through colour blinds’ eyes is just black and white. In reality, the majority of colour blinds really do see colours. It is estimated that a person with normal colour vision is able to see 1 million different shades of colours, while a person with colour blindness is only able to see 10,000 different colours. 

Types of Colour Blindness

There are normally three types of colour blindness. The different types of colour blindness vary in the range from difficulty in differentiating certain colours to unable to see colour at all.

A. Red-Green Colour Blindness

The majority of people with colour blindness have inherited this type of defect. People with this type of colour blindness find it difficult to distinguish between red and green. There are four types of red-green colour blindness.

  • Protanomaly – People with this defect sees red greener and less bright.
  • Deuteranomaly – It makes the green look redder. 
  • Protanopia and deuteranopia make people unable to tell the difference between red and green at all. 

B. Blue-Yellow Colour Blindness

This type of colour blindness is less common where people struggle to differentiate between blue and green as well as yellow and red. There are two types of blue-yellow colour blindness.

  • Tritanomaly makes people difficult to see the differences between blue and green, and between yellow and red.
  • Tritanopia causes people hard to identify the differences between blue and green, purple and red, and yellow and pink. The colours also would look less bright for them

C. Total Colour Blindness

Also known as monochromacy, lives up to the term “colour blindness” as people with this type of defect are completely blind to colours. The world in their point of view would look like a black and white movie running on the television. This type of people is sensitive to light as well. 

Common Struggles of Colourblind People

Colourblind people tend to face difficulties in simple tasks that a normal person doesn’t see as a problem at all. For example, colour blinds are frustrated when it comes to cooking when they are unable to decide if the meat is cooked or needs more time. Choosing ripe fruits might sound easy but it’s not in the eyes of colour blinds. 

Colour blindness impairs people to drive sometimes where obtaining a driver’s license is a problem. The step of getting a license is to pass the computer test that requires candidates to complete ten Ishihara colour plates without fail before proceeding to further questions. Colourblind people often find this test impossible to get all ten questions correct. Thus, they have to find an alternative way, where they will need a doctor’s approval in order to complete the computer test. This process can be a frustrating one because normal people could just pass the tests on the first attempt. 

There are limitations for colour blind people to pursue certain careers that highly emphasise perceiving colours. This includes but not limited to careers such as pilot, police officer, firefighter, doctor and electrical engineer. Most of them would not realise that they are colourblind until they pursue their dream career.  

Careers and Degree Choices for Colourblind

On the bright side, there are many other careers that focus more on skillset over colour vision ability. Despite the inability to differentiate colours, students are packed with hard skills and transferable skills that can be a great advantage for them to pursue careers in the following recommended fields.

Civil Engineer

Some of the roles in engineering require strong colour vision such as electrical engineers, where their role is mainly handling multi-coloured wires. However, engineering careers such as civil engineering does not mainly require colour vision because they work on blueprints and sketches that are printed in black and white. Students will need a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and a passion for mathematics to pursue their career as a civil engineer.

Lawyers usually conduct researches, draft documents, providing counselling to clients about their legal rights arguing cases in the trial rooms. This career suits well for colourblind people because the entire career pathway does not relate to colours at all. However, students enrolling in this degree will need to have critical thinking skills and communication skills to thrive in this career.

Accountant

The main role of an accountant is to prepare and interpret financial records for a company or organization. This career does not correlate with colour vision. Instead, an accountant needs to be excellent with numbers and possess strong analytical skill. A typical degree course in accounting takes three years to complete and upon completion, graduates may pursue their careers in ACCA or CIMA to become a certified chartered accountant.

Journalist/Copywriter

Journalist and Copywriter are two different job scope. Journalists usually work for prints, media and broadcasts. Meanwhile, copywriters work on articles and contents to promote a product or service for businesses. Both careers involve research skills and creativity to write about a specific topic. A degree in journalism is suited for students to pursue a career in either one of the profession.

Nutrition and Dietetics

Nutritionists and dietitians help their patients maintain a healthy lifestyle and advise them on choosing the right food to eat depending on their health condition. The work involves verbal communication and paperwork. Thus, it is important to have strong communication skill and writing skills.

Best Indoor Jobs That Could Be Your Top Choice

Sharing is caring :)
product-school-XZkk5xT8Xrk-unsplash

When choosing a job, there are a lot of things to be considered, such as;

how much is my salary per month, or;

do I get health insurance, or maybe even;

does my job involve more outdoor or indoor activities? 

The first thing that popped into our mind when hearing the word indoor jobs would probably be:

Office, desk, sitting, bored.

But turns out, indoor jobs aren’t just things related to boredness, it also has plenty of advantages for employees, especially for people that are more likely to work in a controlled environment, love to work behind the desk, or hate going outside. Other than having protection from various weather such as rain, wind, or hot sunshine, here are some of the reasons to choose indoor jobs.

Reasons to choose indoor jobs

  • Ease of Communication

The majority of people would prefer face-to-face interaction rather than keeping in touch through email or text.

When you’re working in an office, it is undoubtedly easier to get in touch and communicate with colleagues, employers, and even your seniors. Furthermore, when you’re working on a project with your teammates, it is easier to keep track of the progress, share ideas, and offer a helping hand to others. Thus, reduce the possibility of miscommunication. 

  • Expand Your Network 

Working in an office allows you to gain the opportunity to know more about the people on your surroundings, thus expanding your network. It is crucial since it allows you to meet more people from different work areas and helps you to understand people better. Moreover, it can develop your relationship with others, from your managers, seniors, to the vendors. Having a large network will boost your interpersonal and communication skills, gain new experiences, and learn something new every day.

  • Personal Space

If you are the type of person that likes to have their own private space, organize your personal things, and need high concentration, then working in an office is perfect for you! You will most likely have your own cubicle with your own personal computer so you can get your work done better and more organized.

  • Time Management

Every office usually has its fixed working hours, lunch, and breaks. If you are someone who is really time-oriented or perhaps someone who struggles to discipline yourself, working in an office would definitely suitable for you.

Study Accounting & Finance in Australia 2020

Sharing is caring :)

Overview: What’s the Difference?

In essence, the main difference between Accounting and Finance is that accounting focuses on past records and present reports, then using the information to assess a business’ financial position; while finance deals with using these financial records to for future financial planning, investment decisions and drive new business strategies. Even so, universities’ finance and accounting degrees infuse both elements as they relate closely to each other.

The Industry

Australia’s economy and job market have been growing steadily over the past 5 years, and it is projected to continue growing for the next 5 years. Accounting careers are estimated to grow from 199,200 in 2018 to 207,200 in 2023. 

Furthermore, the average earnings for full-time workers in this industry is around AUD $1,660 per week, though it may be lower when you start out, and it grows progressively as you gain experience over time.

You can get a majority of accounting jobs with a bachelor degree qualification, though diploma in accounting is the minimum qualification in some jobs. (source)

ACCA vs Accounting Degree: Which Should You Study?

Sharing is caring :)

According to many ACCA qualifiers, ACCA is far better than an Accounting degree but how true is this in today modern world? For sure, the requirement to qualified as ACCA is tough but is it worth it when the markets prefer degree holder? 

What’s the main difference between ACCA and Accounting Degree?

An Accounting Degree is an academic degree awarded by a university whereas ACCA is a professional accounting qualification awarded by an International body. ACCA is not an academic degree. An Individual may complete ACCA after his degree but he cannot do it from the opposite way unless they cannot do it from the opposite way. 

What will you study at ACCA and Accounting Degree?

If an individual is a business-minded person and not consider to work in an Accounting field for the rest of their life, an Accounting degree might be more suitable. A degree has a course structure made up of core accounting subjects together with other relevant electives such as management, marketing, finance and business law. all of which are meant to give an individual a more well rounded and holistic experience. Whereas, in ACCA an individual will be taught with accounting subjects throughout the entire course.

Whereas, ACCA narrows on technical aspects and principles of accounting that are required of a professional accountant, giving an individual more deep knowledge in accounting. The syllabus covers advanced accounting techniques and calculations in greater detail compared to a degree, especially at the Professional level. ACCA do not provide much interaction between an individual and his peeps during the length of the course, causing him to lose out the opportunity to develop leadership and team working skills during the education age. 

Sample subjects comparison:

ACCA Accounting Degree (sample syllabus)
F1 AB Accountant in BusinessL1 Business Communication
F2 MA Management AccountingL1 Introduction to Management
F3 FA Financial AccountingL1 Accounting for Managers
F4 CL Corporate and Business LawL1 Economics
F5 PM Performance ManagementL1 Business Information Systems
F6 TX TaxationL1 Marketing Principles
F7 FR Financial ReportingL1 Commercial Law
F8 AA Audit & AssuranceL1 Quantitative Analysis
F9 FM Financial ManagementL2 Financial Accounting 1
P1 Governance, Risk and EthicsL2 Accounting Information Systems
P2 Corporate ReportingL2 Financial Accounting 2
P3 Business AnalysisL2 Corporations Law
P4 AFM Advanced Financial ManagementL2 Management Accounting 1
P5 APM Advanced Performance ManagementL2 Corporate Finance
P6 ATX Advanced TaxationL3 Accounting Theory and Contemporary Issues
P7 Advanced Audit & AssuranceL3 Auditing and Assurance
 L3 Company Accounting
 L3 Taxation Law
 L3 Management Accounting 2

ACCA and Accounting Degree, which is more difficult?

An accounting degree is easier than ACCA due to a gradual progression of difficulty throughout the 3 years of study. Moreover, an accounting degree is not 100% paper-based exam, it includes marking from assignment and presentation. Unlike ACCA, the course is 100% paper-based exam and more challenging as the subject material becomes exponentially more difficult as an individual move from one to the other.

ACCA and Accounting Degree, which is faster?

Accounting degree usually takes about 3 – 4 years to complete from SPM level, starting with pre-university studies such as A-Level or foundation and follow-by to an accounting degree, which takes about 2 (Singapore) to 3 years (Malaysia). Whereas, ACCA usually takes about 3 years after SPM. An Individual can take the 1-year Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) right after SPM and proceed to the rest of ACCA papers as quickly as 2 years. 

ACCA and Accounting Degree, which is cheaper?

A 3-years Accounting degree can cost around RM45,000 up to RM110,000 depending on the quality and reputation of the university. If cost is a major concern on the affordability, an individual can apply for a government loan (PTPTN) to loosen the financial burden in education. Whereas, ACCA cost around RM 32,000 – RM45,000 not to mention there is an annual membership fee of RM1800 per year to bear. An individual can have an ACCA qualification without attending any private tuition centre (there are plenty of it in Malaysia) but choose to self-study instead. This will lower down the costs by paying all the necessary examination fees instead of full tuition and resource fees.

Malaysia College & University Fees Guide 2019

ACCA and Accounting Degree, are they both equally recognised?

Today, having an Accounting degree from private universities is far more recognised than the past due to international accreditation and partnership arrangement (like how an individual could earn an Australian degree from UCSI University in Malaysia without physically present in Australia). Although ACCA is a professional qualification, it does not necessarily give an individual a better access to the job markets overseas. The world is very different now compared to the past where every country is doing anything they can to protect the local job market. Thus, it is simply not enough relying on ACCA qualification if the ultimate goal of an individual is to work overseas. (Call us 016-214-3443 If you would like to work in Australia)

What are your career options?

With an Accounting Degree, an individual can branch into careers both in and outside the accountancy field. Whereas, most ACCA qualifiers can only work in accounting fields. 

Do you require ACCA to work at big four?

Some argue that the top accounting firms (known as the Big Four) would prefer their employees to have at least a professional qualification (whether it is MIA, ACCA, CPA or CA). This is a myth and not necessarily the truth, hiring is a complication process, other than an outstanding academic qualification, the hiring managers also looking at the personality (through personality test), communication, leadership and initiative skills. This is verifiable through LinkedIn.  

Alternatively, an individual may complete his professional qualification (ACCA) after the degree. If the individual is lucky and talented enough, some companies might even sponsor him to pursue a professional qualification, such as the ACCA or CPA, in exchange for a bond to the company.

In conclusion, Accounting Degree gives an individual a variety of career choices in and outside the accounting field whereas, ACCA provides an individual with deep professional skills in Accounting. However, the choice should ultimately depend on how long an he is willing to set aside for the studies, the budget and the career choice in the future.

Top 10 Universities for Accounting & Finance in Australia

Sharing is caring :)

Accountancy is crucial as it provides updates on the financial health of the company. It advises the company of the progress and threatening problems that need to be addressed. A Bachelor of Accounting degree can lead to a wide range of careers. While typically such graduates become accountants or auditors (internal or otherwise), there are many opportunities. The accountant designation itself breaks down into several types: public accountant, management/corporate accountant, government accountant, chartered accountants (can be in private or public practice), forensic accountant and CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant). 

If you’re looking to pursue a career as an accountant and gain membership with a professional accreditation body such as CPA, you might consider completing an undergraduate degree majoring in accounting. However, some grads choose to add to the effort and earn a master’s degree. There are also additional optional certifications for accountants, including CA (Chartered Accountant) or ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants). As for careers other than accountant or auditor for graduates of a bachelor’s degree in accounting, some require additional certification (academic and/or professional).
