The programme will encompass modules across the areas of actuarial mathematics, statistics, economics and finance, to provide graduates with the knowledge and skills to pursue a career as an actuary. This programme will provide students who have not undertaken an undergraduate Actuarial Science degree with the opportunity to accrue exemptions from six of the earlier IFoA professional exams (CM1-2, CB1-2 and CS1-2) in addition to undertaking postgraduate study.
