Welcome to the home page of the Department of Actuarial Science

The Department of Actuarial Science is extremely proud of its alumni. Former students occupy the highest positions in the insurance and investment world, not only in South Africa, but also abroad. It strives to keep its programme competitive and to afford students the opportunity to leave the University with a number of exemptions from the examiniations of the Actuarial Society of South Africa (ASSA). It has highly skilled academics who serve on various committees of ASSA. 

Prospective students should feel free to contact us should you have any questions about an Actuarial or Financial Engineering degree that are not answered on the site. Our aim is to firstly assist you in making the correct career choice and, secondly, to choose the correct university for this purpose.
