Actuarial Science and Risk Management

Actuarial Science and Risk Management

The BSc Actuarial Science and Risk Management programme has been designed by qualified actuaries to enable students to develop the theoretical and practical skills required to pursue a career as an actuary in the pensions and insurance sectors, or in the wider financial industry. In addition, students may gain up to six exemptions from the initial technical professional exams required to qualify as an actuary via our accreditation with the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.

Subject to academic performance, students can gain various exemptions from the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) professional exams.

Students may wish to join the Student Managed Fund, a student-run organisation which aims to educate its members on trading and investing through guest speakers, competitions and educational seminars. It manages a £30,000 real money portfolio, giving students the opportunity to be part of an investment management process. The Finance & Actuary Society runs social and educational events for members, such as the end-of-year formal.

During my third year, I was on a placement with Allianz Re Dublin Limited, working as a student actuary. Through the placement, I not only learned some technical skills such as VBA coding, analytical reasoning, and problem-solving, it also gave me opportunities to gain an insight into an actuary’s job scopes and responsibility.
