Actuarial Science brings together mathematical, statistical and financial techniques to solve problems involving risk. Typical areas where the prediction and management of risk are pertinent are insurance, annuities, and pensions. This Single Honours programme will be delivered by the Department of Mathematics in conjunction with the School of Management, both located on the Bay Campus.
The programme will provide a solid training highly aligned with that required for entrance to the Actuarial profession. Accreditation of the programme will be sought from the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA), and we expect that graduates with good degrees will gain exemptions from a fair portion of the IFoA professional examinations, most likely across CS1&2, CM1&2.
Careers in the Actuarial profession are very financially rewarding, highly sought after and a ‘passport’ to working in the global environment.
