Summary

Actuaries are highly skilled quantitative professionals who are primarily concerned with the identification, quantification, analysis, and management of various types of risk, particularly those with long-term financial consequences. Their expertise is essential to the proper management of life, general, and health insurance companies, pension funds, and investment firms, their skills are very highly regarded and valued throughout the financial services industry, and their opportunities to practise worldwide are strong and growing.

This programme provides an intensive, professional-level, specialist education in actuarial science. Students performing well in the instructional component (PG Dip) can gain exemptions from professional examinations of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, which are internationally recognised. Following the instructional component, students progress to the MSc by successfully completing a three-month supervised project and dissertation/ report component.
