Financial Planning Intensives 2020

Are you looking to complete FASEA-approved units in a flexible learning format? Deakin's financial planning intensives combine online learning with face-to-face classes, offering a comprehensive and supportive study experience.

Program overview

Deakin's three-day intensive programs are designed to provide essential knowledge for your financial planning career. Immerse yourself in a flexible learning environment with leading academics and industry experts, while building your professional networks.

Each program involves the application of principles to case-studies in a supportive and informal format. Leading up to the program, you are tasked to complete readings and learning activities so you can apply your knowledge as soon as you arrive. You'll also have access to a full suite of online learning materials that have been specifically developed to provide students with a rich, interactive, and engaging experience.

All of our single-unit intensive programs are FASEA approved, and study of intensive programs will contribute to Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
