This programme is based in the Department of Statistics. It provides high level training in probability theory and statistics for random processes with applications in the areas of insurance and finance and their interface. It includes a comprehensive and unified approach to all quantitative aspects of modern actuarial science. Students receive rigorous training in mathematics and scientific computation and are introduced to a range of schemes for risk transfer, sufficiently broad to equip them for highly specialised work in insurance, pensions, investment, and banking and for independent research in these areas.
Benefits of the programme include:
* Studying in a department with an international reputation for teaching and research in modern actuarial science and mathematical finance.
* The opportunity to study related subjects taught by other departments in the School.
* Excellent prospects for employment and further study. Students can gain employment in the finance or insurance industries. They can also go on to do a higher degree.
