Mathematicians develop important analytical skills and problem-solving strategies to assess a broad range of issues in commerce, science and the arts.
Mathematical models and simulations, and the interpretation of their results, are being called on increasingly in global decisions, as business, politics and management all become more quantitative in their methods. The application of mathematics is also in demand in the social sciences, particularly economics, where mathematical tools are used to formulate models of the complex interactions in an economic system – in situations as significant as the effect on UK inflation of joining the European single currency.
This degree programme is unique in the UK. It will give you a good statistical training and leads to possible exemption from all eight Core Technical professional actuarial examinations. In addition, you will get a solid foundation in mathematics. The degree is an ideal one if you are thinking about a degree in statistics or finance, but do not wish to be locked into a single career pathway which a more specialised Actuarial degree might involve.
