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 course offers you the opportunity to spend a year working in industry or studying at a university abroad, both of which provide valuable experience and help your personal development. Both of these schemes add an additional year to your course, taking the total course length to 4 years.
