Actuaries provide assessments of financial security systems, focusing on their complexity, their mathematics, and their mechanisms. Actuaries quantify the probability and manage the risk of future events in areas such as insurance, healthcare, pensions, investment, and banking and in non-financial areas. This course is taught by the Department of Mathematical Sciences and is intended for students with a first degree in mathematics, statistics, economics or finance who would like to acquire knowledge in actuarial science. The MSc Actuarial Science course is based on the syllabus of the majority of the Core Technical subjects of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. This MSc will cover Core Technical subjects as part of this course (CT2 or CT3, depending on the optional module selected, CT4, CT5, CT6, and CT8). Students can also specialise on a topic of choice, with options including: Actuarial and Financial Modelling; General Insurance; and Life Insurance.
