About Actuarial Science, MSc - at City, University of London

As the needs of the actuarial profession and the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries evolve, the skill set of actuaries is used in wider applications in both traditional and non-traditional fields, and the intake of overseas members increases, we launch a new curriculum to reflect these challenges and ensure that it is fit for purpose for actuaries in an ever-changing global business environment.

On this postgraduate course, you will study statistics, probability, stochastic processes, survival models, economics, finance and investment, insurance, pensions and financial contracts valuation, with computer-based applications. This broad and varied syllabus is equivalent to the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries' Core Modelling, Core Statistics and Core Business professional examinations (Subjects CM1, CM2, CS1, CS2, CB1, CB2), and enables you to gain exemptions from them.

The master's in actuarial science is delivered via face-to-face lectures from qualified actuaries, academics and other subject-specialists, complemented by dedicated online support and computer-based applications, easy access to faculty members, and advice on study and exam techniques. Lecturers use their commercial experience and research expertise to deliver a challenging, relevant and intellectually stimulating course.
