The Dublin City University BSc in Actuarial Mathematics prepares you to pursue a career as an actuary or, more generally, for a career in finance. Actuaries are involved in quantifying and managing risk and work in areas as diverse as banking, insurance and healthcare. As financial markets become increasingly complex there is a growing need for professionals with both mathematical and financial expertise. Graduates of the DCU BSc in Actuarial Mathematics are in high demand by both the actuarial and financial industry in Ireland and internationally.

The BSc in Actuarial Mathematics is fully accredited by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, UK. Students may obtain exemptions from the Core Principles examinations (CS1, CS2, CM1, CM2, CB1 and CB2) of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, UK. These are the initial examinations required to qualify as an actuary in Ireland and the UK. Exemptions depend on examination performance during the degree, and students who achieve all six exemptions can significantly reduce the time taken to qualify as an actuary.

This degree involves an 8-month paid work placement (INTRA) in the actuarial or financial industry, which allows you to gain practical skills and experience in a commercial environment and helps you make an informed career choice upon graduation.

If you excel in mathematics and problem solving and want to apply your talents to a career in the actuarial profession or finance, then come and join our course.
