The standards authority has approved the first round of graduate diplomas and bridging courses from certain higher education providers.

FASEA said its approval recognises the alignment of the listed programs and courses with FASEA’s required curriculum and standards.

Graduate diplomas and bridging courses are requirements for existing advisers to meet the education standard across the existing adviser pathways as defined in FPS001 Education Pathways Policy.

FASEA chief executive Stephen Glenfield said the release of the approved list of bridging courses and graduate diplomas provides advisers with a clear pathway to meet the education standard by 1 January 2024.

“The approval of the above courses concludes a significant number of accreditation applications received by FASEA,” Mr Glenfield said.

“These courses and degrees will be added to FASEA’s Degree, Qualifications and Courses legislative instrument.”

FASEA said it will continue to assess any further applications received from higher education providers in respect of courses to meet FASEA’s education standard.
