5.10 Prizes and Actuarial Exemptions
Prizes will be awarded for outstanding/excellent performances in each year of our degree courses. For continuing students, these will be presented in the induction session at the start of the next academic year.
For graduating students, these will be presented in a reception in the Department on the day of graduation.

The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) is the UK's only chartered professional body dedicated to educating, developing and regulating actuaries based both in the UK and internationally.
Information about the IFoA can be found at https://www.actuaries.org.uk/
The curriculum, which was developed in 2019, can be found at https://www.actuaries.org.uk/studying/curriculum-2019
Exemptions from the professional actuarial examinations are not given automatically. The actuarial profession only awards exemptions if a student has achieved a satisfactory overall performance as well as a satisfactory performance in the relevant University courses.
Actuarial exemptions for individual students are determined each academic year by an external assessor who validates the examination and assessment schema and sets the minimum criteria. Intermediate and finalists students will be notified of their exemptions by email of a secure link by the end of September following the examining boards.

It should be noted that the only first year modules that will be required for actuarial exemptions are core modules.
