The strong intellectual challenges combined with the expected financial rewards make this a highly sought-after profession.
This degree offers students the opportunity to develop their mathematical ability, whilst staying focussed on financial and actuarial applications. Not only does the course provide the technical knowledge required by students wanting to join the Actuarial Profession, but it also seeks to promote the development of a wide range of skills. This ensures that graduates are able to add value in many areas for their future employers.
