This is for you if… you want to get an in-depth knowledge of the use of mathematical methods and skills in actuarial science.
Our aim is to produce graduates who are capable of working primarily as financial mathematicians and actuaries, though they will develop an awareness of the broader financial sector. No matter what position you ultimately hold in the financial world, certain key mathematical skills are essential. It is these core skills that the Actuarial Science programme will provide.
Students who are sufficiently successful in the relevant modules are expected to be award exemptions from the Actuarial Profession’s exams CT1 to CT8.
The course modules are:
- Calculus and Analysis I and II
- Linear Algebra I and II
- Introductory Statistics
- Microeconomics and Macroeconomics
The actuarial course modules are:
- Cash-flow Analysis and Interest
- Principles of Financial Modelling
- Mortality Modelling
- Advanced and Applied Statistics
- Introduction to Computing
- Computational Econometrics
- Finance and Financial Reporting
The course continues with further actuarial modules such as:
- Financial Mathematics
- Actuarial Statistics
- Professional Skills
- Actuarial Products and Liabilities
- Financial Engineering
A significant individual project applying mathematics to the solution of real problems from the financial world is also included.
Subject to approval from the Actuarial Profession, students who are sufficiently successful in the relevant modules will be awarded exemptions from the Profession’s exams (CT1-CT8).
