CFA exams and scholarships



We award seven CFA Program Awareness Scholarships for UniNE MScF students willing to enroll in the CFA Program and who meet the programme entrance requirements.

Scholarship awards will reduce CFA Program enrollment and exam registration fees.

Scholarship applications are possible for any level of the CFA exam and are no longer restricted to first-time registrants.

All applications are completed, submitted, reviewed and awarded online.

Ressources for students studying remotely

  • Research Foundation publications: Students can search for and freely download from a vast range of short, readable, practitioner-based research publications - from financial markets, economics, equity analysis and behavioural finance through to fintech and artificial intelligence. This is a great resource to supplement project or dissertation reading.
  • The Ethical Decision-Making online course: This free online course helps students navigate ethical situations using the Ethical Decision-Making Framework. They are presented with real-world scenarios and case studies in an online platform that allows them to interact with their peers and study at their own pace (1.5 hours learning).
  • CFA Institute Investment Foundations: This program gives students considering careers in the investment industry a clear understanding of industry structure, job roles, investment instruments, inputs and tools. Suitable for undergraduates, this currently free certificate program is delivered entirely through a modern online learning platform accessible on most devices (80-100 hours learning).
