How do I apply?
To apply for an exemption you will need to submit a completed application form, including payment details, together with supporting documentation. Details of the current fees for exemptions can be found on the application form.
What is the required documentation?
The required documentation will vary according to the grounds on which you are applying for an exemption:
- if we have an agreement with a university or a professional body we only ask for documents to confirm you have gained the qualification
- if you are applying because you have a qualification that we do not have an agreement with we request more details of the syllabuses you took and the marks you gained.
Detailed information is on the Exemption application form
Certification of documentation
We cannot accept responsibility for the loss of any documents, so please supply certified copies. Please get your documents certified by an employee of your company who is either a Fellow or Associate of the IFoA or of an IAA recognised actuarial body.
The application process
You will receive an email from the Education Services Team to confirm receipt of your application and we will process your application as quickly as possible. The time taken to process your application will depend on its complexity. We will send you written details of the results of your application.
If you wish to apply for an exam in case you do not obtain an exemption in that subject, you should apply for the exemption at least eight weeks before the exam closing date to allow time for your application to be processed.
