New accredited programme for UEA

The Education Committee has agreed the accreditation of a BSc in Actuarial Science programme at the University of East Anglia for CT1-CT7. The four-year programme, which includes a compulsory placement year, is supported by Aviva, which is providing advice to the programme team, some teaching input and placement opportunities for students. Aviva is also sponsoring a chair in Insurance Statistics at the university.

The programme involves teaching input from a range of departments, including computer science, mathematics and the business school. This is the 13th accredited university since the process was introduced three years ago. Programmes at undergraduate level are eligible for exemptions at the CT level, while some postgraduate programmes offer exemptions at the CA and ST level. Postgraduate courses are offered on a full-time, part-time and distance-learning basis. Details of accredited programmes are on the Profession’s website at www.actuaries.org.uk/students/courses
