Actuarial Science

Bachelor
Compare programme

As an actuary you are able to predict the future. Not really, of course. But you do use mathematics and statistics to determine the likelihood of certain events occurring in the future. An economic crisis, for example, or a fire, or a bankruptcy. During the BSc Actuarial Science you learn how to estimate risks, calculate their financial impact, and mitigate them properly. UvA is the only Dutch university offering both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s programme in Actuarial Science.
