How do I enter?

To enter the AMP University Challenge, here's what you need to do:

Step 1

Form a team

Teams can be made up of just one person or a small group of no more than three people. All team members must meet the eligibility criteria of being a full time or part time university (or equivalent) student in Australia, and cannot be an Authorised Representative or Representative of any Australian Financial Services Licensee*.

Step 2

Apply now

Before you apply, determine which semester you want to compete in. To make sure the competition is fair, the case study for each semester will be released to all entrants with the same timeframe to complete.

Each registered team’s key contact will receive an information pack on either the 4th March 2019 or 2nd August 2019. Registrations received post the “open” date will receive the information pack within 72 business hours of registering. This pack will include the task overview, the details of the case study, and a template to be used for the discussion paper. The information pack also sets out other important requirements, which must be met in order for your entry to be eligible for the AMP University Challenge.

Step 3

Prepare a strategy

This is the fun part. As a group, collaborate by brainstorming and researching the strategies you believe would be most appropriate to achieve the client’s financial goals. Don’t forget, we’ll provide you with templates that you must use.

On the Resources page, there are handy financial tools and calculators. These aren’t compulsory, but you may find them useful when preparing your discussion paper. You might also find a useful website.

Step 4

Submit your discussion paper

Submissions can be made by emailing Make sure you reference your team’s name and submit your discussion paper by 5.00pm (AEST) on Monday, 29 April 2019 for Semester 1 entrants and by 5.00pm (AEST) on Friday, 27 September 2019 for Semester 2 entrants.

Note: your first submission will be the one marked and therefore determine your eligibility for Finals day.
