Course summary

Our BSc Actuarial Science (including foundation year) is open to Home and EU students and will be suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for the three-year version of this course. This four-year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of study. During your Year Zero, you study four academic subjects relevant to your chosen course as well as a compulsory English language and academic skills module. Actuaries provide assessments of financial security systems, with a focus on their complexity, their mathematics, and their mechanisms. This course encourages you to delve into your passions for mathematics and practical problem-solving. You learn the theory and methods used by professional actuaries; on how to apply mathematical and statistical skills to minimise financial risk when the stakes are high, in areas such as commerce, government, insurance and finance. Located within the Department of Mathematical Sciences, we have an international reputation in many areas of current mathematical research and thinking. As a member of the department you are part of an inclusive and approachable research community which allows you to explore topics in pure, high-level mathematics and applied mathematics.
