Qualifying as an actuary is a passport to a wide variety of careers in insurance companies, investments, pensions, health care and banking – not just in the UK, but throughout the world. Kent is one of a very few universities in the UK to teach the subject.

Our MSc in Applied Actuarial Science and International Master’s are all fully accredited by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries; they also provide a fast-track route to qualifying as an actuary, because students who achieve a high enough overall mark in these programmes can obtain exemptions from the professional examinations included within their studies.

Teaching and assessment

Assessment is usually by a mixture of coursework and examination; exact weightings vary from module to module.

Accreditation

Students who are considered to have performed sufficiently well in the programme (both in examinations and coursework), as determined by an examiner appointed by the UK Actuarial Profession will receive exemptions.

If you fail to achieve a suitable overall standard, you might still be awarded individual module exemptions as recommended by the Profession’s examiner. Please note that individual exemptions are granted based on the final written examinations only.

Programme aims

This programme aims to:

  • give you the depth of technical appreciation and skills appropriate to a Master’s level programme in actuarial science
  • provide successful students with eligibility for subject exemptions from the Core Technical series of examinations of the actuarial profession. This means obtaining a thorough knowledge and understanding of various core actuarial techniques and gaining current knowledge and understanding of the practice of some of the major areas in which actuaries are involved
  • ensure you are competent in the use of information technology, and are familiar with computers, together with the relevant software
  • introduce you to an appreciation of recent actuarial developments, and of the links between subject theories and their practical application in industry
  • prepare you for employment within the actuarial profession and other financial fields
  • provide suitable preparation for students who wish to proceed to the MSc in Applied Actuarial Science.
