Who is eligible for exemptions?

Members who joined the IFoA before 17:00 (BST) on 31 July 2019 and hold the exemptions for subjects from the Actuaries Institute Australia until 31 December 2021 maybe eligible for exemption from certain subjects (Core Principles and CP1).

Graduates from the following universities accredited by the Actuaries Institute Australia are eligible to apply for exemptions with the IFoA:

Student members have until 31st December 2022 to claim their exemptions.

Who is not eligible for exemptions?
