Actuaries use a variety of mathematical techniques to solve real business problems. This involves reasoning about risk, and quantifying the impact of undesirable events. There is an increasing demand for actuaries in both the private and public sectors, working within a variety of areas such as banking, investment management, consultancy, manufacturing, transport, insurance and pensions. On this course, you’ll be taught jointly by the School of Mathematics and Leeds University Business School, exploring key topics in mathematics, finance, economics and accounting. You’ll be intellectually stimulated whilst preparing for a potential career that is highly financially-rewarding. This programme covers much of the content of The Actuarial Profession’s (Institute/Faculty of Actuaries) core technical subjects. On graduation, you will be able to apply for exemptions from some of The Actuarial Profession’s exams.
