The 2020 Rule
From 2020, the Actuarial Institute will be using the Foundation Program and Actuary Program. Go to Application for Exemption Recommendation: Original Transition Rule to find the details for the original transition rule before 2020. For the Foundation Program, if you were enrolled before 2020, refer to CT subjects for Part I. For the Actuary Program, if you completed all Part II subjects (A+B) or one of them before 2020, refer to Part IIA and Part IIB courses.
The 2021+ Rule
From 2021, some changes to the 2020 rule (only CS1, CS2 and CB1 in Foundation Program) are made due to the introduction of the new Integrated First Year (IFY) and the recommendations from the Academic Program Review (APR) panel. These changes will be implemented in 2021 and onward. You can find the details in the 2020 and 2021+ Exemption Guidelines.
All students are required to apply* to have an exemptions recommendation letter issued by the UNSW School of Risk and Actuarial Studies, for the Foundation Program and Actuary Program of the Actuaries Institute. Exemptions are usually granted for Foundation Program (Part I) courses when you have achieved Credit or above in the average of the corresponding UNSW courses. Moreover, the exemption standard for Actuary Program is also Credit or above.
*Note: academic transcripts are no longer required.
