Course details
Course UCAS code: L1N3
Qualification type:
  • BSc (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
Unique in the UK, this programme combines study of economics, social sciences, and actuarial science. Graduates can enter a wide variety of careers, ranging from economists working in the banking sector to actuaries working in the insurance, pensions, and investment sectors. All of our actuarial science programmes provide students with a professionally-recognised education. By doing sufficiently well in corresponding modules, you could kick-start your graduate career with exemption from Subjects CT1-CT8 of the Core Technical professional exams of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, which are internationally recognised. On graduation you'll be well equipped to begin your actuarial career with advanced professional standing, or to follow many other careers that require high-level quantitative skills, including within the wider financial services industry.
Modules:
Years one and two cover three core themes – economics, statistics and demography – and form the basis of the actuarial modules, which constitute a major part of year two and three. Module choices in year one are dependent on whether you have studied economics at A level. Eight modules are studied each year, with four in each semester. During year three you will study a dissertation, equivalent to two modules, which is a piece of independent research on a topic of your choice spread over both semesters. In each year of study you can also choose modules from other subject areas, including languages, or from a range of interdisciplinary modules.
Assessment Methods:
Modules are examined at the end of the semester in which they are taught, and in some cases a coursework mark will contribute to the overall grade for the unit. Satisfactory performance in the first year is required in order to progress to year two. Final degree classes are based upon marks from the second and third years.

The University of Southampton is a fantastic university which undertakes world-class research and amazing teaching. I have experienced first-hand the enthusiasm and passion of my lecturers and seminar tutors. The campus is particularly brilliant due to the large number of facilities based directly on campus such as the GP, Costa, Banking etc. In addition, the campus is incredibly green and is filled with nature and animals. The pastoral care is also very good and so it is easy to feel welcome at this institution.
