The MSc in Actuarial Science course is accredited by the UK Actuarial Profession. Cass Business School was the first institution in the UK to have both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes fully accredited by the UK Actuarial Profession. It is also recognised by other actuarial professional bodies around the world.
Consequently, students have an excellent opportunity to gain exemptions from the Core Technical examinations of the UK Actuarial Profession.
The programme is delivered via face-to-face lectures from qualified actuaries (and other experts in the field) complemented by dedicated online support, easy access to faculty members, and advice on exam techniques.
Faculty members include a significant number of qualified actuaries and other experts in range of wider fields, who use their commercial experience and current research interests to inform their teaching.
Successful candidates on the MSc in Actuarial Science may also proceed to the MSc in Actuarial Management. The one-year MSc in Actuarial Management course offers modules leading to exemption from most of the later professional actuarial examinations, and it has its own MSc dissertation option.
There is a continuous demand for capable postgraduate level executives in the actuarial profession, whose members are among the highest paid in the UK. They work in fields such as: Insurance companies (life/non life departments), consulting firms, government departments, banks and investment firms, teaching and research.
