Welcome to the Research School of Finance, Actuarial Studies and Statistics (RSFAS). The School is home to research and education in the disciplines of finance, actuarial studies and statistics at the ANU and offers an extensive suite of rigorous undergraduate and postgraduate coursework and research degrees in all three fields. The RSFAS is a young and dynamic school and its staff have received PhDs from the very top universities in the world.

The most attractive part of my program is that I can quickly apply what I've learnt from classes into practice. Almost all of the news around the world every day is somehow related to finance and we can easily use the knowledge in books to solve problems in reality, or to prove all the theories we learn through historic events and the facts.      Fanfan (M Fin)

The RSFAS strives for excellence in all its research and educational endeavours, something best evidenced by the international recognition of research undertaken by its academics, the numerous research grants received and the many awards for educational excellence awarded to its instructors. The RSFAS is a designated Centre of Actuarial Excellence by the Society of Actuaries and is accredited by prestigious industry bodies including the Chartered Financial Analysts Institute, the Actuaries Institute and the Statistical Society of Australia.

The combination of finance, actuarial studies and statistics that comprise RSFAS creates a dynamic and stimulating environment that encourages excellence in research and education for researchers and students alike. 

ANU has one of the best actuarial studies programs in the nation, offering a standalone bachelor’s degree, unlike other universities which offer only a major. By choosing a combined Actuarial Studies and Finance program, I am able to study in two areas which interest and challenge me.               Shayan (B Act/B Fin)

RSFAS welcomes prospective students, research collaborators and educational partnerships. We hope that by browsing our website you will learn about our School’s unique structure, excellence in teaching and diverse and internationally recognized research.
