Course details


Kick start your career as an actuary with New Zealand's only Master’s-level actuarial science qualification.

Sustainable societies need actuaries

Actuaries will always be in demand to plan for the future. They predict and analyse financial risks and solve business problems in many industries, and can contribute to policy work on climate change, future health and retirement provision, and natural disaster planning.

Make an impact

Actuaries make recommendations and decisions that have an impact on people’s lives. You could work on investment programmes in the private or public sectors, design life insurance products, manage pension schemes, or advise government on retirement, education, and health planning.

During your studies, you will hone your professional skills and develop practical competence in problem-solving, negotiating, and influencing.
