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. During the Actuarial Science of the University of Amsterdam you learn how to estimate risks, calculate their financial impact, and mitigate them properly.


Help organisations identify financial consequences of risks

As a future expert you will analyse the financial consequences of economic developments and risks. You will use mathematics, statistics, and financial theory to study uncertain future events, for example those of concern to insurance and pension companies.

During your studies we help you gain insight into the latest theories and models. Besides this, we will train you to apply them to real-life business cases.
