About Actuarial Science at Faculty of Science, University of Strathclyde

Studying a degree in Actuarial Science at the University of Strathclyde, you'll be learning at a multi-award-winning academic organisation. A 5-star QS-rated university, we were also awarded Times Higher Education UK Business School of the Year in 2016.

The MSc in Actuarial Science has been developed to produce graduates who can clearly demonstrate an understanding of the mathematical models used in actuarial calculations, their computer implementations, and the financial and economic contexts of these calculations.

The programme is an innovative cross-faculty alliance between the Strathclyde Business School and the Faculty of Science.

The course is designed so that students who have a strong aptitude for mathematics and statistics, but who have not studied these topics in detail in their undergraduate degree, can learn the necessary skills to move into the financial industry. Therefore the first semester provides foundation classes in statistics, mathematics, finance and economics that require no previous background in these topics.
