Students studying BSc (Actuarial Science) have a choice of two different streams to enter for third year. Students are advised to complete second year before deciding their pathway. The first stream is critical for students wishing to achieve all eight exemptions. The second stream is aimed at students not wishing to further their studies in actuarial studies but to wish to continue into an actuarial and statistical role.

Actuarial Science Major

This stream covers all eight CT exemptions

Semester One:

  • MATH3005 Survival Analysis CT4
  • MATH3006 Life Contingencies 1  CT5
  • STAT3001 Statistical Modelling CT6
