    Has the course been running for long at Essex? I can't remember it existing when I applied for 2012 entry...if so I would avoid as less than five years is a short time, especially in comparison to Kent which has been running the course for a long, long time.

    I graduate from Act Sci BSc at Kent in a few weeks, I really enjoyed the course (and the placement year I did), the teaching was good especially for the exemption modules and I have no real complaints. We had a lot of opportunity to talk to practicing and retired actuaries which was a huge bonus, there was also a lot of employability guidance. Let me know if you have any more questions.
