Part-time refers to study load, not to timetabling of evening classes.
The Master of Financial Planning is a fully online course designed to provide the educational basis to enable you to increase competence as a professional financial adviser, and gain advanced knowledge and understanding of the financial planning industry. With the increasing complexity of taxation laws, the ageing population and the focus on self-reliance in retirement, the financial planning industry is developing as a distinct profession in Australia.
Individuals and organisations require the skills of professionally equipped financial planners to assist them in effective investment and risk management, and also with complex retirement planning strategies.
You may exit on completion of 40 credit points with a Graduate Certificate in Financial Planning or on completion of 80 credit points with a Graduate Diploma in Financial Planning.
