Post-nominals are abbreviated letters placed after a person’s name to indicate a completed qualification. For example, as a graduate of the Master of Applied Finance degree, the student may place the letters MAppFin next to their name.
Upon completion of your qualification at Kaplan and following conferral of your award (your testamur and final academic transcript have been presented at the annual Graduation ceremony or you have received them in the mail), you can refer to the list of qualifications below to identify which post-nominal to use.
When writing your postnominal, full stops should not be used.
However, commas are optional. Furthermore, qualifications should be listed from lowest to highest. As an example of written post-nominals:
John Smith, BEcon, MAppFin
John Smith, BEcon MAppFin
