Opportunities for UK students in Cape Town

The University of Cape Town in South Africa is attracting an increasing number of students to its postgraduate Diploma in Actuarial Science.

Students who attend the university, which was rated as one of the top 200 in the world, hail from the UK, Mauritius and elsewhere in Africa. A local qualification is expected to be in place by 2010, and until then the Diploma will be accredited for UK exemptions. The course features the involvement of practitioners from the industry and exemption credits are offered for CA3 and ST5 starting in July.

CA1, ST2 and ST4 begin in February 2009 and it is possible to complete the Diploma in 10 months, depending on your choice of subjects. You can also upgrade the Diploma to a Master’s Degree by completing a dissertation. The ST range of subjects is run jointly with the neighbouring University of Stellenbosch.
