New degrees to be added to FASEA-approved course list

The Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority has proposed the addition of new bachelor degrees, graduate diplomas and bridging courses to its approved list as part of a new draft legislative instrument.

FASEA’s draft 2019 determination includes all bachelor degrees, graduate diplomas and bridging courses approved by FASEA since the 2018 determination was registered.

The determination also includes FASEA-approved recognition of prior learning (RPL) for education undertaken to attain professional designations and the associated credits appropriate for the existing adviser pathways set out in FASEA’s education standard.

In addition, the draft 2019 determination includes amendment to historical course/degree details provided to FASEA by higher education providers following its registration of the 2018 determination.

“The draft 2019 determination documents the significant body of course and other accreditations approved by FASEA throughout 2019 and provides recognition of study undertaken by advisers,” said FASEA chief executive Stephen Glenfield.

“FASEA welcomes stakeholder feedback as we continue to update FASEA’s approved list for the education standard, and all feedback will be carefully reviewed prior to making of the legislative instrument and release of the explanatory statement.”
