Overview

The BSc Actuarial Science programme is designed to produce graduates who are capable of solving real-world problems involving risk and uncertainty using mathematical tools. You will learn how to predict future uncertainty, analyse and evaluate potential risks, and make calculated forecasts for the future.

During the programme, you will study a range of modules in economics, finance, business and mathematics to prepare you for a career working as actuary across a number of industries. Industries where actuaries are employed include the insurance, banking and government sectors, where they work to calculate costs, determine premiums, develop derivative products, manage risk, forecast the future and ensure compliance with regulatory laws.

The actuarial profession involves the application of mathematics through probability and statistics tools to analyse risk for future uncertainty.
