Mutual recognition

A mutual recognition agreement is a reciprocal agreement between the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) and another actuarial body which recognises each other’s professional qualifications

Following the introduction of Curriculum 2019, all MRAs, other than the AAE MRA (Actuarial Association of Europe), are suspended.

We are currently reviewing the suspended mutual recognition agreements with the following associations:

The IFoA has now introduced another route to becoming a Fellow or Associate member:

Individual Qualification Recognition

Applications for qualification recognition shall be considered by the IFoA on an individual basis. More details and application forms can be found here.

Prospective applicants should, in the first instance, contact Gillian Ozer.

As a student member you might be eligible for exemptions from some of our exams. Please contact education.services@actuaries.org.uk to find out more.
