Course summary

**About This Course**Study the art of risk: measuring it, assessing it, managing it, mitigating it – and sometimes profiting from it.Crossing the road, making a cup of tea, flying on holiday, starting a new business: nearly everything in life encompasses an element of risk. And to an Actuary, risk is everything. If you’re strong on mathematics and have an interest in business and economics, are fascinated by world events and not afraid to take an educated gamble, a career in this small but growing (and pretty lucrative) profession could be ideal.**Overview**Our Actuarial Science with a Year Abroad degree will teach you how to look to the future from a business perspective, assess any likely impact, then put a price on mitigating any risk. And, due to our strong links with industry, you’ll have opportunities to put the theory into practice. By adding a year abroad to your programme you will have the opportunity to broaden your skillset further by taking additional modules at a partner university. A year abroad will also develop your personal skills and make you stand out to potential employers in the competitive graduate recruitment marketplace. Actuarial Science is exciting, challenging and stimulating – and its skillsets are in increasingly high demand.If you have a love of mathematics and business but want to work with them in a more applied field, Actuarial Science is a great choice. As well as becoming a professional Actuary, it opens up doors to broader fields including data science and risk management. Our multidisciplinary Actuarial Science degree course brings together UEA’s Schools of Mathematics, Computing Sciences and Economics, along with the expertise of practicing actuaries. You’ll develop core skills in mathematics, statistics and finance, and each year you’ll have the option to choose a traditional actuarial module or, if you’re thinking about specialising in data science, you’ll be able focus on developing additional computing skills. Plus, we’ll help you hone the communication and presentation skills essential to any graduate entering the financial sector.Our strong links with industry mean you’ll have unique opportunities to see theory put into practice, and our syllabus includes guest lectures from working professionals, such as experts from Aviva. What’s more, you’ll have the opportunity to gain exemptions from the professional examinations set by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, so you could graduate one step ahead of your competition. The year abroad will provide you with an opportunity to enhance and expand both your academic and interpersonal skills. It will allow you to create a truly bespoke programme based on your own interests.**Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
