How do I apply?

For Postgraduate degrees with dissertations

You will need to demonstrate that your dissertation showed sufficient coverage of the actuarial syllabus. To do this you will need to provide the following information:

  • a certified copy of your university transcript
  • a certified copy of your university degree certificate
  • a supporting letter from a Fellow of an International Actuarial Association organisation, stating how the work done in the dissertation is of relevance to actuarial work

A non-actuarial MSc, MPhil or PhD in an economics, finance or finance related discipline will also be considered for exemption.

If you hold an actuarial Masters degree from an accredited programme the qualification should give exemptions from other subjects and you will not be eligible to apply for exemptions from ST0.

For a MBA

You will need to send in certified copies of your MBA certificate and transcript

For a professional qualification

You will need to send a certified copy of official proof of your qualification. See the list of the eligible qualifications
