Course content

This postgraduate degree programme provides quantitative graduates with an intensive and coherent programme of specialist education in actuarial science. MSc students also undertake case studies/research project in actuarial science or a related discipline.

All of our actuarial science programmes provide students with a professionally recognised education. By doing sufficiently well in corresponding modules, you will kick-start your graduate career with exemption from Subjects CS1, CS2, CM1, CM2, CB1, and CB2 of the Core Principles professional exams of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, which are internationally recognised. On graduation you’ll be well equipped to begin your actuarial career with advanced professional standing, or to follow many other careers that require high-level quantitative skills, including within the wider financial services industry.

This postgraduate degree programme is designed to provide quantitative graduates with the opportunity to undertake an intensive and coherent programme of specialist education in actuarial science, to gain exemptions from certain of the professional examinations of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, the UK professional actuarial body, and to thereby enable graduates of the programme to subsequently enter employment as actuarial analysts with advanced professional standing.
