What our students say
“My programme is really interesting. There is one module in particular called Actuarial Professional Development which is an amazing module. Each week we hear from people from different areas of the actuarial field such as insurance and pensions, which has given me a perspective of what working as an actuary
Winsen Ng, BSc Actuarial Science student
“The programme has a very practical aspect and there’s a lot of maths behind the topics we’re studying. I like the Statistics for Insurance module because it combines actuarial methods with real world examples such as gaming. I’m currently on the placement programme. I decided to apply for a placement at Lloyds Banking Group and my application was successful, so I will be doing my placement year next year, focussing on risk-related work.”
