Oxford MSc Financial Economics

Actuarial society exemption

Actuaries provide commercial, financial and prudential advice on the management of assets and liabilities - especially where long term management and planning are critical factors. Actuaries traditionally work in finance, investment and risk management, general insurance, life insurance, pensions and social security.

The Institute of Actuaries and the Faculty of Actuaries are the two chartered professional bodies for UK actuaries, working closely together across the UK as The Actuarial Profession.

The Oxford MFE has been approved by the Actuarial Profession as being of the required standard and leads to blocks of exemptions from the Profession's exams, providing that a suitable overall standard is achieved. 

The subjects covered by this agreement are: 

  • CT1 – Financial Mathematics 
  • CT2 – Finance and Financial Reporting 
  • CT3 – Probability and Mathematical Statistics 
  • CT7 – Economics 
  • CT8 – Financial Economics 
  • ST0 – Alternative study Specialist Technical

Further information on how to apply for these exemptions can be found on the Actuaries website.
