UK and Ireland Student Consultative Forum

The UK/Ireland Student Consultative Forum is currently comprised of:

  • students representing the UK and Ireland regional communities
  • students representing those with disabilities
  • student representative(s) of the Actuary magazine
  • senior committee/board members
  • executive staff of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA)
  • representatives of ActEd.

It meets twice a year and discusses:

  • proposed developments and changes within the IFoA qualification and its associated processes
  • feedback from the student population on current education processes, tuition arrangements, and wider aspects of the student actuarial career.

It does not discuss:

  • concerns raised by either an individual or a small number of students if these concerns are felt not to be in the interest of the majority of students.
