About this degree

Semester 1 (February) only. However, if you have completed an actuarial degree or multiple exemptions of Part I, you may be able to enter this program in Semester 2 (July). 

Students who receive credit and exemption may be able to enrol Control Cycle Courses in 2019: 
ACST8040 (S1), ACST8033 (S2) and ACST8041(S2)
*From 2020 onwards, Associate Program (formerly Part II exemptions) will include ACST8040 (S1), ACST8032 (S2) and ACST8041(S2).

Enrolment Status

It is possible to enrol in less than 24 units per semester but it will take you longer to finish your program and get your degree. If you are an international student you must always be enrolled full-time in 24 units each semester.

You are encouraged to enrol in courses for both First Semester and Second Semester.  You will be able to change your enrolment in courses up until Monday of week 2 of each semester without penalty.


Please consult with the program convener before you enrol any elective courses. Please also refer to the following link for further information of the ANU courses leading to exemption status from Institute of Actuaries, Australia (IAA).

Study Options

Academic Advice

Credits or exemptions will not be granted if they will result in ineligibility for actuarial accreditation (https://cbe.anu.edu.au/about/professional-organisations-accreditation/actuaries-institute-requirements). If we are not certain as to the student’s eligibility for accreditation, then it is up to the student to provide proof of how their prior study results in eligibility for the Institute of Actuaries (Australia) accreditation.

It is advisable that students discuss their course selection with the Program Convener, Dr Robert Clark (robert.clark@anu.edu.au).

 If you request a permission number to enrol any course, please complete an Application Form for Enrolment Change and submit it to the CBE Student Services, or email to info.cbe@anu.edu.au.
