About this program

Trimester 2 and Trimester 3 intakes are available via online delivery only.

For those new to financial planning including career changers or non-degree holders, the Graduate Certificate in Financial Planning (Pathway 1) provides the foundation level of knowledge and skills required by modern financial advisors to start and progress their career. This includes the practice and theory of financial planning including financial markets, risk management and taxation. This program articulates into the Master of Financial Planning.

For experienced advisers holding a related degree, the Graduate Certificate in Financial Planning (Pathway 2) provides an opportunity to meet the new regulatory requirements and advance knowledge in areas such as finance, leadership, consumer behaviour and more. A choice of electives is packaged with the Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) bridging courses into a program of study.
