BSc (Hons) Actuarial Studies
About the Programme
The programme draws together a variety of subjects that involve applying mathematical and statistical techniques in the financial world. It is designed to pave the way for students wishing to enter a career as an actuary. Students will be prepared for professional exams that lead to recognised actuary status or specialist in the financial risk and insurance industries.
The Society of Actuaries (SOA), USA, Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS), USA, and Canadian Institute of Actuaries (CIA) conduct actuarial professional exams leading to professional designations such as Fellow of the Society of Actuaries (FSA), Chartered Enterprise Risk Analyst (CERA), Fellow of the Casualty Actuarial Society (FCAS) and Fellow of the Canadian Institute of Actuaries (FCIA).
Our programme also provides exemptions for 3 papers (VEE) from the professional bodies on condition that the student scores at least B- (or equivalent grade) in the designated subjects offered in the programme.
The Associateship of the Malaysian Insurance Institute (AMII) is an alternative professional qualification for students to consider. There is an accelerated pathway to this professional qualification, via our BSc (Hons) in Actuarial Studies programme. Students are eligible for exemptions of up to 11 AMII modules (out of 14 AMII modules), with the possibility of completing the remaining modules within the 3-year degree. This is an exclusive opportunity for the students to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree and professional qualification upon graduation.
