UCL (University College London): Natural Hazards for Insurers

InstitutionUCL (University College London) View institution profile
Department Earth Sciences
Study type Taught


Climate and environmental change, increasing development and urbanisation, and mounting exposure to natural hazards are imposing growing pressure on insurers and reinsurers to seek ways of limiting exposure and reducing vulnerability. The PGCert Natural Hazards for Insurers provides students with a better understanding of natural hazards and the means by which their impacts on the market can be mitigated or avoided.

Strong emphasis is placed on developing an improved understanding and analysis of natural hazards, including relevant research, data and uncertainty, and new approaches to risk management. Content focuses on hazards of most interest to the market, such as windstorm, flood and earthquake, but also addresses geotechnical hazards that include dam and reservoir failure and hazardous wastes.

Students undertake modules to the value of 60 credits.

The programme consists of two taught core modules (20 credits each) and an independent project (20 credits).

Upon successful completion of 60 credits, you will be awarded a PG Cert in Natural Hazards for Insurers.
