University courses with exemptions

If you have completed a degree from a university that we have an agreement with you may be eligible for exemptions from some of our exams.

University students who begin their degrees based upon the existing curriculum will have until December 2023 to pass and claim their exemptions.

This will depend on the modules you take, and the grades you obtain.

  • Accredited programmes can lead to exemptions based on your overall performance during the course
  • Other actuarial and non-actuarial degree courses can lead to exemptions from individual exams based on your performance in certain modules of your course.

If you are considering applying for a university programme that offers exemptions, we strongly recommend that you contact the university for further information.
