Actuarial Science with a Year in Industry

This course combines depth of study with an excellent level of preparationtowards becoming an actuary. You will develop your appreciation of recent actuarial developments and practice, and learn how to link theory with practical application in industry. Your first two years will be spent learning mathematical skills in the School of Mathematics, gaining computing, statistical and practical actuarial skills in the School of Computing Sciences, and studying business and management skills in Norwich Business School. During your second and final years you will also take modules partly presented by actuaries from Aviva. Spend your third year in a business/commercial environment, working alongside actuaries so that you gain awareness of the application of technical concepts in the workplace. Then return to UEA to complete your final year. This version of our Actuarial Sciences degree is strongly recommended by our contacts in industry, who say that completing a year in industry will significantly enhance your employment prospects. Your year spent in industry also counts towards the work-based skills requirement for becoming a member of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.
