Course summary

Actuaries use mathematical, statistical, financial and economic theory to solve real business problems, typically involving risk, uncertainty and the financial impact of undesirable events. There is an increasing demand for actuaries in both the private and public sectors, working within a variety of areas such as banking, investment management, consultancy, manufacturing, transport, insurance and pensions.On this course, you’ll be taught jointly by the School of Mathematics and Leeds University Business School, exploring key topics in mathematics, finance, economics and accounting. You’ll be intellectually stimulated whilst preparing for a potential career that is highly financially rewarding.This programme has significant coverage of The Actuarial Profession’s (Institute and Faculty of Actuaries) first level examinations. On graduation, you may be able to apply for exemptions from some of The Actuarial Profession’s exams depending on your grades and the agreements in place between the University and the Actuarial Profession at that time (these agreements are subject to periodic review).
