University courses and exemptions
Completion of programmes at the universities below can lead to a recommendation for exemption from some of our exams. This will depend on the modules you take, and the grades you obtain.
- Accredited programmes can lead to exemptions based on your overall performance during the course.
- Other actuarial and non-actuarial degree courses can lead to exemptions from individual exams based on your performance in certain modules of your course.
The subject by subject exemption agreements that the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries has with the universities are based on information that the relevant university has provided to us. If you are considering applying for one or more programmes on this list, we strongly recommend that you contact the university for further information.
A university may make a decision not to run advertised accreditation programme modules. The university's own website will give more details on current modules offered.
We are unable to advise you on the degree programme, or the programme options, which you need to take to enter the profession. Our best advice is to take the programme where your abilities are the strongest, as actuarial employers will look for a minimum 2.1 in a numerical degree. Other actuarial and non-actuarial degree courses can lead to exemptions from individual exams based on your performance in certain modules of your course.
