FASEA adds new approved degrees

FASEA has added a number of new courses from the University of NSW to its approved degree list.

In a statement, the authority said it had approved the university's Graduate Diploma of Financial Planning for its degree list, applying to students who took the course from 1 July 2019. 

In addition, FASEA had approved two bridging courses offered by the university in Ethics for Financial 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 authority said.

"The approved courses will be added to a future degree, qualifications and courses legislative instrument."

FASEA chief executive Stephen Glenfield said the approval of the additional courses would build on the body of courses approved by FASEA and provide additional choice to advisers seeking to meet the education standard.


The authority has now approved three historical courses, 56 current bachelor or higher degrees and 35 bridging courses.
