University of New England Partnership

Through the Monarch Institute, the TAL Risk Academy has partnered with University of New England (UNE) to offer a range of education pathways to assist advisers to successfully comply with the new Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) requirements.

This new partnership with UNE has been structured to provide you with an extensive range of support services in order to make your transition into tertiary study as easy and as seamless as possible. 

Why might I need to update my qualifications?

From 2019, new government legislation affecting the education, training and ethical standards for financial advisers requires all new and existing advisers to undertake a course of study that is accredited by FASEA. Whilst some advisers may need to complete an eight unit Graduate Diploma in Financial Planning, many other advisers will study fewer units as a result of being eligible for credits for prior learning.

Monarch will assess your previous learning and qualifications and design a course of study that will meet your education requirements whilst minimising your cost and time.

How will I benefit from this partnership with UNE?

If you have completed a TAL Risk Academy course, you are eligible for a 15% discount on the cost of the Graduate Diploma fees.

To provide proof of a course completion, where requested, any TAL Risk Academy certificate can be used.
