The most direct path to qualification

Let your ambition shine brightly and tread the proven path to actuarial distinction. There are just three stages to take you from uni student to Institute Fellow.

Direct path to qualification

Understanding exemptions

To become a qualified actuary after graduation, you'll need to complete the Actuary Program with the Institute. Your accredited degree allows you to claim exemptions. This means you will have completed the Institute's Foundation Program and half the Actuary Program without needing further study.
