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 profession could be ideal. Our integrated masters in Actuarial & Data 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. Due to our strong links with industry, you’ll have opportunities to put the theory into practice.

You will have the opportunity to increase your computing, communication and business awareness skills to provide the potential for you to be an asset to any potential employer.
