We no longer offer this program but welcome applications for our Graduate Certificate in Self Managed Superannuation Funds.

Investment in superannuation in Australia is accumulating at an astonishing rate and now totals over $1.3 trillion. In particular, the self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) industry is rapidly increasing, with over 2,500 new accounts opening each month, taking the total to over 410,000 SMSFs. This makes it the fastest growing sector in financial planning and wealth management.

The SMSF industry is subject to legislative changes, compliance issues, and vigorous scrutiny. Advisors in SMSFs need to increase their knowledge and skills, and the financial literacy skills of investors.

The Professional Certificate in Self-Managed Superannuation Funds is a unique qualification that links higher education with the requirements of industry. Courses are delivered in executive-style intensive mode by academics and industry practitioners.

The program consists of two courses only. The minimum study period is therefore one year, taken part-time.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
