Actuarial Science

Do you enjoy solving problems? Do you enjoy analysing and interpreting large amounts of data and applying this analysis to real business situations? Could you communicate complex financial and risk models to people at a range of levels? A career as an actuary is a highly rewarding one - both financially and intellectually. Actuaries are problem-solvers, business analysts, consultants and risk assessors, all rolled into one. With this degree under your belt, the skills you have learned could be applied to the worlds of insurance, pensions, healthcare, banking, business management and risk assessment. You will be equipped with mathematical and statistical knowledge and problem-solving skills to help businesses and institutions evaluate the long-term financial implications of the decisions they make. You may already be employed as a trainee actuary within a firm, or be a recent graduate looking to get into the industry, it could be that a career change is your reason for studying this course. Whichever it is, an Actuarial Science degree from the University of Leicester will provide you with a head start within this lucrative career. By concentrating on both technical expertise and transferable skills (such as communication and problem solving) this postgraduate degree will prepare you for direct entry into the profession and a successful career. You will leave Leicester equipped with the skills and knowledge to evaluate and interpret different forms of data, analyse risk and present your results to a professional audience, and with an understanding of how to apply this knowledge to real problems using the fundamental techniques required by an actuary.
