UK and Ireland Student Consultative Forum

The UK/Ireland Student Consultative Forum is currently comprised of:

  • students representing the UK and Ireland regional communities
  • students representing those with disabilities
  • student representative(s) of the Actuary magazine
  • senior committee/board members
  • executive staff of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA)
  • representatives of ActEd.

It meets twice a year and discusses:

  • proposed developments and changes within the IFoA qualification and its associated processes
  • feedback from the student population on current education processes, tuition arrangements, and wider aspects of the student actuarial career.

It does not discuss:

  • concerns raised by either an individual or a small number of students if these concerns are felt not to be in the interest of the majority of students.

Copies of meeting notes will be published on this webpage following each meeting and will be presented and discussed at the next available Education Committee meeting.
