Faculty & Research

History of the Faculty

The actuarial presence at City started in the early 1970s and was the first such group in the country. In 1974, City introduced a three year BSc Honours Degree in Actuarial Science, with the support of the insurance companies and the actuarial profession. Since then, this course has become very successful, the current intake being about 80 undergraduates with an average GCE A-level attainment in excess of approximately AAA.  Students taking the degree get the opportunity to earn exemptions from the early professional Actuarial examinations (CT1 to CT8).

In 1997 the MSc in Actuarial Management was introduced to give students the opportunity to earn exemptions from many of the later professional subjects.

In 2002 the Department of Actuarial Science and Statistics left the School of Mathematics and became one of the Faculties making up Cass Business School, formerly called City University Business School.
