Actuaries are business professionals who apply their knowledge of mathematics, probability, statistics and risk theory, to real-life financial problems involving future uncertainty. These uncertainties are usually associated with life insurance, property and casualty insurance, annuities, pension or other employee benefit plans, or providing evidence in courts of law, on the value of lost future earnings. | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Introduction | View Details | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

The Mathematics Programme offers course units in Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Operations Research and Actuarial Mathematics. For purposes of registration, mathematics may be regarded as two subjects. A student who registers for Mathematics both as a major as well as a minor teaching subject shall be considered to have registered for double mathematics.
The B.Sc. course is designed to provide broad training in the basic mathematics underlying the operations of private and social insurance and employee benefit plans. The course units are organised to assist the student to prepare for several examinations of the Faculty of Actuaries, the Casualty Actuarial Society and the Society of Actuaries | |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
