This degree is accredited by the AFA, FPA, FPEC and FASEA and satisfies the tertiary degrees required to register as a Tax (Financial) Advisor with the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB).

The School of Business has been awarded AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) accreditation for its excellence in business education.

Due to legislative changes, there are new requirements that mean financial advisers must hold a degree in order to practice within their field. New financial advisers need a degree by 2019, while existing advisers need degrees by 2026. At Western, we recognise that prior working knowledge and experience can be highly valuable and relevant to further study, so we have created the Challenge Assessment.

This program allows eligible students who have more than two years’ experience the opportunity to undertake two Challenge Assessments with Western. These will help us evaluate your knowledge and potentially fast-track your pathway to an accredited degree. Please note the Challenge Assessment is only available to candidates that have relevant working experience and knowledge within the Financial Planning field.

The Challenge Assessment is available for the following subjects: Communication and Ethics in Financial Planning, Principles of Financial Planning, Investment Planning, Superannuation, Planning for Retirement and Funds Management & Portfolio Selection.

We know you’re busy juggling work and life. This degree is studied online, so you have the flexibility you need to do it all.
