Two degrees and one bridging course have been approved by the Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) to meet its education standards.
These were the Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Financial Planning from the University of New South Wales and the Graduate Diploma of Financial Planning from the University of Tasmania, both from the first semester of 2021.
FASEA also approved the Ethics and Professionalism bridging course from the University of Tasmania.
Approved courses were recognition of the alignment of the listed courses with FASEA’s required curriculum and standards.
Stephen Glenfield, FASEA chief executive, said the organisation would assess any further applications received from higher education providers in respect of courses which met FASEA’s education standards.
So far, some 75 historical courses, 56 current Bachelor or higher degrees and 35 bridging courses were approved.
