Our accreditation

Many of our courses are accredited by the relevant professional body, helping to accelerate your progression in your chosen career.

The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) offers a number of examination exemptions for students who have successfully completed our BSc Actuarial Science or MSc Actuarial Science.

IMA accreditation

Several of our Mathematics degrees are accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA).

These programmes will meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the IMA, when they are followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught master’s degrees.

CII accreditation

The CII is the world’s largest professional body for insurance, risk and financial services. It has over 115,000 members in more than 150 countries.

The CII awards credits into its two professional qualification frameworks for those seeking a career in insurance, risk management or wealth management.

Those holding a Bachelors or Masters degree in Mathematics, Statistics or Actuarial Science can claim 30 credits for one of the frameworks. It is not possible to make a Bachelors and a Masters claim – students must choose just one.
