Explore the real-world applications of mathematics and topics related to the actuarial science profession – preparing you for a wide range of career and study options. This course is aimed at mathematics students with a particular interest in finance, specifically in actuarial science. It includes Finance and Economics modules delivered by the Cass Business School and the Department of Economics. Students combine the study of mathematics and finance and explore their interactions with each other. This course provides students with an understanding of important elements of mathematics and of aspects of financial theory such as financial reporting or corporate finance. Excellent facilities ensure that lectures and tutorials are supported through PC-based laboratory sessions. To ease the transition from school to the university environment we offer weekly small-group tutorials in the first year, which provide intensive individual assistance for the topics of the core modules. In the final year, students carry out their own research project chosen from a wide variety of mathematical topics. Assessment within modules is based on examination and coursework whereby marks are weighted in a ratio 1:3:6 for the three years of study to produce an overall aggregate.
