This is Actuarial Science

Study the art of risk – measuring, assessing, managing, mitigating and sometimes profiting from it. Actuarial Science is a profession that’s challenging, well-paid and stimulating.

At UEA, you’ll benefit from our excellent links with industry, both in teaching and research. We collaborate closely with Aviva, one of the largest insurance companies in the world. Their expert employees participate in teaching modules on our Actuarial Science programmes. This allows you to learn more about the work of actuaries and the potential career paths open to you, and gives you the opportunity to apply your knowledge with a focus on industry.

UEA’s multi-disciplinary course combines the Schools of Mathematics, Computing Sciences and Economics, allowing you the chance to absorb and apply a broad range of skills that are increasingly in demand in modern business. You’ll develop a strong grasp of mathematics, computing, and practical modelling, and develop your strategic thinking and presentation abilities. You can tailor your degree to a more traditional actuarial science programme, or add broader computing skills.

With BSc course options including a Year in Industry, Year Abroad or an MMath in Actuarial and Data science there is a programme to suit your interests and aspirations.

This is your Future Career

We work with UEA’s careers service to offer you support at every stage of your course, from choosing a career path through to applying for graduate jobs. Our courses are accredited by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA), so depending on how you perform academically, you could fast-track your route to qualification by earning exemptions to some of the professional actuarial examinations. In some cases, you could expect to be qualified in as little as two or three years after your degree. For a current list of exemptions please visit www.actuaries.org.uk

You could also pursue stimulating and influential careers in a wide range of sectors, including business, insurance, pensions, banking, accounting and other financial services.

This is Opening Doors

“I am working in the General Insurance sector at Aviva in Norwich as a Data Scientist in the Commercial Motor team. Prior to working at Aviva I was working for Willis Towers Watson for two years as an Actuarial Analyst.
I can say for certain I wouldn’t be in the job I am in nor have the opportunity, if I hadn’t studied Actuarial Science. I hold the UEA in such high standing and would recommend it to anyone looking for a university that provides a great education and opportunities to network with a vast range of industries.”
