The curriculum of our Actuarial Science degree provides a good balance between finance, economic, and mathematical theory, computer implementations of this theory, and practical skills and knowledge all underpinning actuarial science.
Core classes are undertaken in the first semester, and address themes such as Principles of Finance, and foundation classes in Mathematics, Statistics and Economics. At the optional class stage (Semester 2), you can begin to tailor the programme to suit your own particular areas of interest and are able to choose from a wide range of classes, offered by all four contributing departments.
