Student and exam news

Read the latest IFoA student news and exam updates

To ensure you are kept informed of updates to examination information, guidance and polices, we send students key updates by email and in our student newsletter. 

You can find student newsletters and email updates for our current examination session listed below, along with a list of key content included in each communication. You can click on the communication title in the table below to view the full communication.

We want to hear your views – new student newsletter format

Some of you will have received our May newsletter in new format. We want to understand whether students would prefer a shorter newsletter, with headlines and links to information, or our current format.

We would like all students take part in a poll to let us know which version they prefer.

Let us know which version you would like us to use in future and take part in our poll.
