Our Actuarial Science degrees are accredited by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA). This MSc offers a fast track route to qualifying as an actuary. Obtaining a good overall mark across your modules can lead to exemptions from the IFoA CT1-8 exams.
What’s the difference?
For an MSc you will take four modules in Semester 1, four modules in Semester 2, and either two modules or a research project over the summer.
For the IFoA exemption, you will need to take all 12 available modules – requiring extra work. You must have strong mathematical aptitude, be prepared to work very hard and be confident that you can dedicate the extra time and effort required. Please discuss this with the Actuarial Science Admissions Team email@example.com before applying.
Also please note that the extra two modules will not count towards the accreditation of your degree, and that each additional module incurs an additional fee.
