Actuarial Communications Project

Module code: MA7422

The aim of the 15 credit Actuarial Communications Practice campus-based module is to ensure students can identify appropriate forms of written communication; select appropriate language for a non-specialised audience; and identify the key issues that need to be addressed and convey these in a piece of communication which:

  • uses an effective structure
  • adopts suitable language
  • includes adequate explanations
  • incorporates appropriate communication tools effectively
  • justifies the approach used when communicating

Workshops will give students the opportunity to develop communication skills through peer-review of documentation. An important emphasis will be on tailoring communications to the expected audience and purpose.
