The programme is designed to get your career as an actuary off to a flying start and to meet the rapid changing needs and challenges of the insurance and investment-related industries by aligning its syllabus with the professional examination requirements.

It offers subjects that have been approved by the actuarial organisations for validation by Educational Experience (VEE) credit, i.e. Economics, Corporate Finance and Applied Statistics. It covers all the topics on the CAS/SOA Probability (P) and Financial Mathematics (FM) actuarial examination and the CAS/SOA Construction and Evaluation of Actuarial Models (C) examination that entail topics such as contingent payment models and frequency, severity and aggregate claims models.
