This course offers students the opportunity to spend a year working in industry or studying at a university abroad, both of which provide valuable experience and help their personal development. Both of these schemes add an additional year to the course, taking the total course length to 4 years. Our industrial placement scheme gives students the opportunity to gain work experience in an industry relevant to their degree and interests. The students often describe this industrial experience as an invaluable part of their degree and one which stands them in good stead for their future careers. The study abroad year enables them to gain insight into the study of actuarial mathematics at one of our partner universities overseas. Many students have found this to be extremely worthwhile in helping broaden their horizons in terms of learning about a new culture and improving their foreign language skills.
