Description Statement of Advice Research Project encompasses a major research project, a Statement of Advice (SOA). This SOA equips students with knowledge and skills to address challenges through research and the ability to apply knowledge developed in earlier units of study. This student-centered unit provides skill development and capacity to engage with the requirements of the profession. Students will have scope to focus on issues relevant to a case study as a means of developing a comprehensive SOA for a client (in the case study). As an integrating unit, it demands participants bringing together their knowledge to develop recommendations based on learning from earlier units. This unit also ensures students meet the regulatory and accreditation education requirements to be a registered financial adviser.
