    Please refer to the Flyer here and below for entry requirements. 

    Entry requirements

    To be admitted into the Bachelor Actuarial Studies (Honours) program, a student must have completed a pass degree, normally the Bachelor of Actuarial Studies degree or equivalent. A student in a dual degree may gain entry to the Bachelor Actuarial Studies (Honours) prior to completing the requirements for the dual degree program if they have completed 144 UOC including all requirements for the relevant major. Students who have completed a non-business degree with a major in one of the specified business areas, or a specified cognate area, may be eligible to complete honours within this program.

    In addition to the above requirements set by the UNSW Business School for enrolment in the program, the School of Risk and Actuarial Studies expects applicants to:

    • Be eligible for exemption from all *Part I courses from the Actuaries Institute;
    • Have a weighted average mark (WAM) of at least 80 in all core actuarial courses (the core courses are the ones that are considered for the purpose of exemption from the Part I examinations of the Actuaries Institute) in the degree in which they are currently enrolled;
    • Have a weighted average mark (WAM) of at least 80 in the degree in which they are currently enrolled.

    Students who have failed a course within their pass degree will not gain entry to the Bachelor of Actuarial Studies (Honours) program.

    The availability and willingness of a supervisor to work with the candidate is another important criterion for successful admission to the program. The number of students accepted to the Bachelor of Actuarial Studies (Honours) program is dependent on the availability of supervisors in the school. If there are more applicants than the school can accommodate, admission will be determined according to students' academic merit. Hence meeting the academic requirements of the program does not guarantee a place in the program. Mid-year entry is not permitted.

    *NB: 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. " The corresponding course(s) per each subject can be found in the table on this website:  https://www.unsw.edu.au/business/risk-actuarial/study/professional-recognition/application-exemption-recommendation-original-transition-rule
