The Postgraduate Diploma in Actuarial Science extends over a minimum of one year of full time study or two years of part-time study and covers material studied by candidates attempting some of the examinations in the ST-subjects set jointly by the Institute of Actuaries and the Faculty of Actuaries.

Admission Requirements

 Applicants must be graduates who have passed or have been exempted from subjects CT 1-8 and CA1of the joint examinations set by the Institute of Actuaries and the Faculty of Actuaries.

Making Application

Before making formal application on the standard University application form, prospective applicants should discuss the matter with the Head of the Actuarial Science section of the School of Management Studies, Professor R Dorrington (Tel (021) 650 2475).

Aims and Objectives

 The PgDip in Actuarial Science provides lectures to prepare for and, in some subjects gain exemption from the examinations leading to the Fellowships of the Institute of Actuaries or the Faculty of Actuaries.

These final examinations demand a considerable degree of practical experience and therefore candidates registered for the Pg Diploma will generally be in employment and thus registered for the part-time Postgraduate Diploma.
