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 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. The fourth year of the programme will allow you to expand your skills beyond that of a standard graduate. 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.

Course 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 practising Actuaries.

You’ll develop core skills across mathematics, statistics and finance, and each year you’ll have the option to choose a traditional actuarial module or, if you’re thinking about specialising in data science, you’ll be able focus on developing additional computing skills. Plus, we’ll help you hone the communication and presentation skills essential to any graduate entering the financial sector. Adding a 4th year to your programme will broaden your skillset and expose you to the world of data science which is an exciting growth area for the actuarial profession.

Our strong links with industry mean you’ll have unique opportunities to see theory put into practice, and our syllabus includes guest lectures from working professionals, such as experts from Aviva. What’s more, you’ll have the opportunity to gain exemptions from the professional examinations set by the Institute & Faculty of Actuaries, so you could graduate one step ahead of your competition.
