About the Course

The Master of Actuarial Studies suits those who have a strong background in actuarial studies, economics, mathematics or statistics. In this degree, you'll develop the technical expertise needed to pursue the role of an actuarial analyst, as well as other roles in the broader financial services industry. You can also strengthen your actuarial training by including relevant postgraduate electives from the Business School in other disciplines such as data analytics, accounting or finance.
