Insurance and Actuarial Science

About the course

IThe BSc (Hons) Actuarial Science programme equips our students with the knowledge required to embark in a career in the fields of actuarial practice or science.
In addition to preparing students for a career as an actuary, the programme is designed to be broad enough to allow students to pursue any career in which a high level of knowledge and skill in the disciplines of finance and mathematics is required.


The mathematical component of the programme focuses on areas such as problem theory, statistics and mathematical finance. The finance and actuarial science component of the programme focuses on understanding areas such as corporate finance, investment theory, contingencies and decision theory.

Various optional modules are offered that cover a wide range of managerial topics, such as strategic management, globalisation, and governance, thus enabling students to broaden their horizons.

What you will learn

The course aims:

Our degrees have a modular structure. This means that compulsory modules provide you with the core knowledge and skills that you need, while optional and discovery modules allow you to shape your course to suit your personal interests and career aspirations.

Actuarial Science is the discipline that develops mathematical models that are used to manage the financial impact of risk and uncertainty; for example, in the insurance industry to develop life and non-life insurance products. Consequently, the programme focuses on those fields in mathematics that are heavily used in the industry, such as probability theory, statistics, and mathematical finance. Apart from this mathematical background, successful actuaries must also have a good knowledge of the economic and business environments in which they operate. This requires the study of, among others, business economics, accounting, and corporate finance.
