Overview

The course will appeal to you if you are fascinated by financial and economic problems and would like to develop your skills in economics and mathematics to tackle them. Economics and Actuarial Science focuses on the study of economics integrated with mathematics, statistics, demography and actuarial science.

Similar courses emphasise the study of mathematics and actuarial science. BSc Economics and Actuarial Science offers a unique opportunity to pursue your interests in mathematics, economics and statistics and follow courses designed to give you a head start in a career as an actuary.

The BSc Economics and Actuarial Science (L1N3) is taught in conjunction with Social Statistics, and is administered by Economics.

The programme is unique in the UK, steering a middle way between degrees in Actuarial Science and those in Economics or Mathematics. It equips you with the knowledge and understanding of economic theory and statistical methods and their applications necessary to undertake graduate study in economics or actuarial science and/or to pursue a future career as an economist or actuary. It provides an excellent preparation for a variety of careers in quantitative finance and will give you a head start if you intend to enter the actuarial profession.

Programme structure

Module choices in year one are dependent on whether you have studied maths and/or economics at A level. Eight modules are studied each year, with four in each semester. During year three you will study a dissertation, equivalent to two modules, which is a piece of independent research on a topic of your choice spread over both semesters.
