FAQ

Is accommodation and food provided (included in cost)? 

We have estimated the total costs (flights, accommodation and food) to be about $5,000. The actual costs will depend on our ability to find low airfares, possible University based accommodation etc. and the selected students will be involved in the choices and therefore the costs. We will also look for possible funding sources to support the costs but students should be ready to pay up to the estimated amount.

Has this study course been offered before? When and to where?  

The first pilot course took place in 2017, when 12 SAF students went to London, UK from August 19 to 27. They had an amazing learning experience and this year will be no different!

How many students are selected? 

The course is restricted to 12 students, due to the limited ability of firms to have on-site facilities for meetings with larger groups of students.

What is the application process? 

Please see the application details above and be sure to submit it by the deadline.

Do we get a credit for the study trip?

This is a for-credit course under the code AFM415 (i.e. equivalent to any one term course).

Winter 2018 AFEF Endowment Fund and AFSA Levy Fund

The Accounting and Finance Endowment Fund (AFEF), formerly known as the Accounting Endowment Fund (AEF), has and will always be for the betterment of the students of the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF). AFSA is no longer the organization that is the sole fiduciary of the fund, and is instead managed by the AFEF Board of Directors, who evaluate proposals each term.  Students enrolled in the SAF contribute $20 to the fund for each term they are on campus. Contributions made to the AFEF are fully tax-deductible and tax receipts are issued by the University of Waterloo prior to each tax season through Quest.

For those students who do not want to contribute AFEF, refunds are now available for the period of Winter 2018: https://info.uwaterloo.ca/infofin/students/endowment_refund_form/form.php

Students also contribute $30 to the Accounting & Finance Association fee (previously voted in by referendum by the SAF student body during 2014-15). It should be noted that you are not eligible for conference subsidies should you request a refund. Furthermore, additional restrictions may be added up to the discretion of the AFSA team. If you have any questions or concerns about the AFEF or refunds, please do not hesitate to contact the Deputy VP Finance, Mansi Patel, at vp.finance@uwafsa.ca.

You can request a refund for the $30 contribution to Accounting & Finance Association here from January 3 – January 23 (midnight). The first step is to state your reasoning for requesting a refund and the second step is to provide your information as well as confirm your acknowledgement of the consequences of the refund. Note that you cannot participate in any AFSA events or services, including the conference programs, if you have opted out of the fee. (AFSA runs its Goes for Gold program which subsidizes 80% of a conference fee and travel, and its subsidy program which subsidizes up to 75% of a conference’s registration fees.)

External Funding Proposal 2017-2018
