Department of Actuarial Mathematics & Statistics
We are a world-leading centre of teaching and research in actuarial mathematics, financial mathematics, risk management, probability and statistics.
We were the first in the UK to offer a specialised programme in actuarial mathematics, and all our actuarial programmes are fully accredited by the UK actuarial profession.
We are part of the Maxwell Institute for Mathematical Sciences, pooling research and postgraduate activity with the University of Edinburgh, and we are home to the Scottish Financial Risk Academy.
Additionally, we were awarded prizes for the Best Paper in two of the six categories at the 2018 International Congress of Actuaries. We were the only UK university to win a prize, and the only university in the world to win two prizes.
