Description

OVERVIEW
The BSc Actuarial Sciences with a year in industry programme allows you to spend a year in industry, giving you the chance to gain relevant work experience and to apply the theory you will learn to practical use in a professional environment. The course is aimed at students who wish to become professional actuaries, and who are passionate about mathematics, economics and problem solving.
Our multidisciplinary programme covers interrelating subjects on current issues in Mathematics, Computing, Finance and Business. Teaching combines the expertise of the School of Computing Sciences, School of Mathematics, School of Economics and the Norwich Business School alongside the expertise of practicing actuaries from Aviva, made possible through our strong links with industry.
The teaching programme is designed to develop your mathematical, financial and statistical knowledge, as well as encouraging you to pursue specialist interests in business or computing. The course also gives you the opportunity to gain exemptions from the first eight professional examinations set by the UK Actuarial Profession (CT1-CT8). Furthermore, you may use the experience gained during your year in industry to count towards the work based skills requirement for becoming a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.
COURSE STRUCTURE
This three year course will begin by developing your knowledge in areas including mathematics, computing, economics and business. This continues into your second year, as you also begin to pursue your own specialist interests through an optional module. Your third year will be spent in industry, gaining experience relating to the actuary profession. Specialisation continues in your final year, alongside core modules designed to strengthen your mathematical knowledge and familiarise you with professional actuarial practice.
