Content

If you want to start your career with a year's work experience in hand, then you should consider this programme. It combines the rigorous studies of the BSc Hons Actuarial Science with a year-long work placement in level 4. Good performance means exemptions from professional examinations (CT1 - CT8) as well as 12 months' experience of working in an organisation such as a life insurance company, a pension consultancy, an investment management firm or a bank.

The Diploma in Industrial Training is gained through successful completion of this work placement. The work placement helps you to develop specific work-related skills, giving you the opportunity to apply and build upon the theory you learn in your studies. It allows you to take on real responsibilities, enhance your interpersonal skills through teamwork and communication and experience workplace culture.
