Actuaries evaluate and manage financial risks, particularly in the financial services industry. They form a small yet well-respected, influential and relatively well-paid profession. If you are good at mathematics and you are curious about financial matters, you should enjoy studying actuarial science.

Our degree gives you the opportunity to gain exemptions from eight of the professional examinations set by the UK actuarial profession, and is one of the few programmes to achieve full accreditation from the profession. Once you qualify, employment prospects are good, and students from this course have also gone on to successful careers in other areas such as accountancy, banking or operational research. The core actuarial modules are taught by professionally qualified actuaries with many years’ industry experience.

This course offers a year in industry and we run the Invicta Actuarial Society, which provides good links with industry. Our School is friendly and we make a point of getting to know our students on a one-to-one basis.
