Integrated CFP® Certification Program and Masters degree

Combine your studies

The FPA has partnered with five education providers, which will allow financial planners to combine a Master of Financial Planning degree with the CFP® Certification Program.

This new opportunity offers choice and flexibility to financial planning professionals, who can now graduate with both an academic qualification and the highest global professional designation in financial planning.

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS

The FPA will give recognised prior learning for the CFP® certification units 1 to 4 to students undertaking the financial planning Masters program at the education providers listed below. These education providers also allow their Masters students to take the CFP capstone (CFP C) with the FPA as an elective.

Students can graduate with a Masters degree and the education component of the CFP designation completed as a part of their coursework, making a significant saving in time and cost. Once the work experience requirements are met graduates will qualify as a CFP® Professional.
