MEDIA RELEASE

FASEA has today confirmed the Graduate Diploma of Financial Planning for the University of New South Wales offered from 1 July 2019 as an approved degree.

Advisers who complete this course of study will meet the education standard.

In addition, FASEA has approved the following two (2) bridging units offered by the University:

  • Ethics for Professional Advisers; and
  • Behavioural Finance Advice

FASEA’s review of the courses follows an application from the University. The approvals are recognition of the alignment of the listed courses with FASEA’s required curriculum and standards.

The approved courses will be added to a future Degree, Qualifications and Courses legislative instrument.

“The approval of these additional courses builds on the body of courses approved by FASEA and provides additional choice to advisers seeking to meet the education standard,” FASEA Chief Executive Officer Stephen Glenfield said.

FASEA has since 2017 approved a wide range of courses that meet required curriculum standards including 73 Historical Courses, 56 current Bachelor or higher degrees and 35 Bridging courses.

FASEA is committed to continuing to assess any further applications received from Higher Education Providers in respect of courses to meet FASEA’s education standard.
