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.Our Actuarial Science 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 with an integral year in industry, you’ll gain invaluable hands-on experience, putting the theory into practice.Actuarial Science is exciting, challenging and stimulating – and its skillsets are in increasingly high demand.**Overview**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 spend the third year of this four-year degree in a commercial environment, working alongside professional actuaries, gaining a true understanding of the application of technical concepts in the workplace. So you’ll graduate not only with technical skills but with relevant work experience too, putting you one step ahead of other graduates.A Year in Industry is strongly recommended by our industry contacts, who say it significantly enhances your employment prospects. It will also count towards the work-based skills required to become a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.You’ll gain first-hand knowledge of the mechanics of your chosen field, while greatly improving your chances of progressing within that sector as you secure valuable contacts and insight. What’s more, you’ll be able to put theory into practice in a context governed by real-world time and financial constraints.**Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
