Actuarial Science, BSc

Description

Actuarial Science brings together mathematical, statistical and financial techniques to solve problems involving risk. Typical areas where the prediction and management of risk are pertinent are insurance, annuities, and pensions. This Single Honours programme will be delivered by the Department of Mathematics in conjunction with the School of Management, both located on the Bay Campus.

The programme will provide a solid training highly aligned with that required for entrance to the Actuarial profession. Accreditation of the programme will be sought from the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA), and we expect that graduates with good degrees will gain exemptions from a fair portion of the IFoA professional examinations, most likely across CS1&2, CM1&2.

Careers in the Actuarial profession are very financially rewarding, highly sought after and a ‘passport’ to working in the global environment.

Pharmacology, BSc

Description

Pharmacology is the science of drugs, their chemical and physical properties, their actions on living systems, and their effects on health and disease. Pharmacologists have played a crucial role in the discovery of hundreds of chemicals used in the treatment of disease and the relief of human and animal suffering.  Through work force and skills gap analyses, the pharmaceutical industry has identified Pharmacology as a critical undergraduate degree, required to treat the current patient population and develop the medicines of the future.  

Pharmacology is a science that underpins both medicine and pharmacy, but where students studying pharmacy will usually go on to dispense medicines in a chemist’s shop, pharmacology graduates go on to a range of careers, including work in academic or industrial research laboratories, pharmaceutical sales, the food and beverage industry, patent law, medical writing, consultancy, or following additional training, medical practice.
