Hey
I'm currently studying Actuarial Data science and what it comprises is Linear Algebra, Calculus, Mathematical modelling (Python), Financial Maths (aka Actuarial maths), Economics, Statistics and Financial management (Accounting).
If you're interested and have a drive for mathematical problems then this degree is for you.
Word of advice, this degree requires a lot of work and it will test your capabilities. Hardwork is inevitable.

I applied for a year in industry for York and UEA which I'm 99% sure will be my firm and insurance choices. I applied for the 3 year for Leicester, Kent and Essex. 🙂

I probably will, although I've not given Essex much attention if I'm honest. But it would still be nice to have a look around.
