Actuarial Science BSc: Chua Han Chun
Han is a Malaysian graduate from Shah Alam, just outside Kuala Lumpur, who studied Actuarial Science at Heriot-Watt's Edinburgh Campus. He graduated in 2011 and is now a trainee consultant with Ernst and Young LLP in London.
"Heriot-Watt University offered me a very flexible, industry appropriate education and I felt my degree programme really prepared me to enter the workforce. I found my lecturers to be very experienced in their fields and the lectures were linked to current industry practice, so the knowledge I gained was useful and relevant to the world of work. I am currently employed as a trainee consultant with Ernst & Young LLP based in London, having joined their Life Actuarial Practice through the graduate programme.
"Heriot-Watt's flexibility allowed me to transfer my credits from study at another university, so I didn't lose any time which was a big help, and it facilitated an exchange year where I transferred to Canada - an experience that broadened my outlook."
