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.

If after reading through these guidelines you are unsure about which courses to enrol in, you can seek advice during Orientation Week or contact the Program Convener, Dr Robert Clark.

If you are required to have a permission number to enrol in a course, or any course that is approved by Dr Robert Clark, please complete an Application Form for Enrolment Change and submit it to the CBE Student Services or email info.cbe@anu.edu.au.
