Department of Insurance and Actuarial Science
Welcome to the home page of the Department of Insurance and Actuarial Science at the University of Pretoria.
The Department is in the fortunate position of offering a unique study programme that prepares students for qualification as actuaries or financial engineers. Specialisation in either of these fields occurs in the third year of studies and continues on postgraduate level.
The Department prides itself in preparing students to compete in the actuarial workplace. As of January 2012, 210 of our alumni were qualified actuaries.
The Department was the first to be chosen by the Actuarial Society of South Africa to apply, and be accepted, for full Exemption Accreditation from the Society’s actuarial examinations, which are being hosted by the Society from the start of 2010. Many of the large employers of actuarial students speak highly of TUKS graduates and some actively seek students from our Department.
Feel free to contact us should you have any questions about an actuarial or financial engineering degree. Our aim is to assist you firstly, in making the correct career choice and secondly, to choose the correct university for this purpose.
