What is the 'Master of Financial and Actuarial Engineering' all about?

The Master of Financial and Actuarial Engineering programme provides students with up-to-date, sound and advanced financial, actuarial and statistical skills. It is an intensive, advanced, one-year programme for university graduates interested in a career in risk management, financial and/or actuarial engineering within financial institutions. The discipline focuses on the application of quantitative methods to problems involving risk or uncertainty. You will gain an understanding of current and future problems and solutions in insurance and banking and be equipped with fundamental and conceptual knowledge of the mathematical and economic aspects of financial theory and insurance techniques.

The programme provides advanced insights into the actuarial aspects of life insurance, general insurance and risk theory as well as financial mathematics and the inter-relationship and integration of actuarial sciences and finance. The programme draws on over sixty years of experience and international recognition. The research team for risk theory, finance and statistics has a strong research profile and is ranked among the world top in terms of actuarial research productivity. The programme is jointly offered by the Faculty of Business and Economics and the Faculty of Science at KU Leuven, in collaboration with Université Catholique de Louvain.

Objectives

The main goal of the programme is to provide the students with an sound knowledge of finance and actuarial science. They develop the capabilities to understand current and future problems and solutions in the actuarial and financial context. They will be equipped with fundamental and conceptual knowledge of the mathematical and economic aspects of financial theory and insurance techniques. Graduates holding both the degree of Master of Financial and Actuarial Engineering and 'Master in de verzekeringen' (Dutch-language initial master at KU Leuven) are eligible for membership in the professional body of actuaries in Belgium (IA|BE), and the international actuarial professional body (IAA).

At the end of the programme students will:

  • be equipped with fundamental and conceptual knowledge of the mathematical and economic aspects of financial theory and insurance techniques;
  • have advanced insights in the actuarial aspects of life insurance, general insurance, risk theory as well as in the interrelationship and integration of actuarial sciences and financial mathematics;
  • have a strong background in quantitative methods and financial models and will be able to select and apply those methods to problems that involve risk or uncertainty;
  • dispose of enhanced analytical, critical, conceptual, problem solving and decision making capabilities and skills;
  • have the ability to integrate actuarial, statistical and financial modelling techniques in order to arrive at effective solutions to problems occurring in insurance and financial practice;
  • be able to conduct research, not only in an academic context, but also in view of a professional career;
  • be able to stay up-to-date with the advances in actuarial sciences by following up and familiarizing with new insights, developments, results and methods;
  • be able to communicate and report adequately on financial and actuarial topics.

Career perspectives

The programme addresses the rapidly-changing needs resulting from the accelerating globalisation of the banking and insurance sector. As such, it provides a sound basis for a career in various areas of risk management, financial and actuarial engineering and insurance. Most graduates find employment in insurance companies, whose financial stability depends on actuarial calculations (e.g. premiums, provisions, capital requirements, reinsurance policy).

As an expert in the field of risk and uncertainty, you can also play an important role in banking and finance. The increasing convergence between the insurance and financial markets as well as the use of mathematically based instruments, such as options and futures, offers excellent career prospects. Graduates are well placed to find employment in banks, pension funds, reinsurance companies, consulting and audit companies.

Some graduates go to work in government, for instance in social security or economic affairs departments. Graduates holding both the degree of Master of Financial and Actuarial Engineering and 'Master in de verzekeringen' (Dutch-language initial Master's programme at KU Leuven) are eligible for membership in the professional body of actuaries in Belgium (IA|BE).

Insurance is a key part of commercial law and practice. It is an enormous industry: in the UK it is second only to banking in terms of the number of employees and the revenues generated. London is one of the world’s leading centres for the industry, and, as well as hosting the head offices of many insurance companies, it is home to the Lloyd’s insurance market.

The LLM in Insurance Law was established by a leading expert in the field, Professor Philip Rawlings, with the aim of filling a significant gap in the current academic and professional training market. The programme will equip you with the knowledge, skills and practical tools needed to gain a thorough understanding of insurance law, practice and regulation.

Queen Mary University of London was the first UK university to offer a specialist LLM in Insurance Law. Insurance law modules have also proved popular among students taking other specialisms.

Insurance Law Institute

The Insurance Law Institute at Queen Mary was established in 2012 as part of the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) to support high quality teaching and research in all areas of Insurance Law.

Taught modules

To specialise in this area, you must select 90 credits of modules from this list and do your compulsory dissertation in the field of Insurance Law (45 credits). The additional 45 credits of taught modules can be in this area or can be unrelated and therefore selected from the full list of LLM modules.

All modules are 22.5 credits unless otherwise stated.

Note: Not all of the modules listed will be available in any one year and semesters listed can be subject to change. Any modules not available in the forthcoming academic session will be marked as soon as this information is confirmed by teaching academics.

The updated module list below represents the result of our ongoing modularisation of the LLM which is intended to offer students greater flexibility and choice of module options.

Careers

The MSc in Volcanology prepares students for research-based careers. Most students then continue on one of three paths, using the skills they have acquired at Bristol. About 40 per cent of graduating students continue on to study for a PhD at a range of institutions in the UK, Europe, North America, Australia and Singapore. Most overseas students return to their home country to work for government agencies in hazard management.

Other graduates choose to work in the commercial sector for either geotechnical companies (who manage assets for large multinationals) or risk management and reinsurance companies, typically in London where we have a burgeoning presence within that community.

The volcanology programme is rigorous and quantitative, and prepares students for settings where both domain-specific knowledge and the ability to conduct independent research are highly valued.
