Student Profile(s)

 Vatsal Gomber

Actuarial Science had been a field of intrigue for me through my engineering days back home. By the time I finished up the engineering degree, I was very sure I wanted to switch over to the field and pursuing the UCC Masters in ActSci was the best possible pathway – exemptions from about 3 years’ worth of actuarial exams meant that this decision was a no brainer. UCC was instrumental in terms of setting me up for a great start to my career – enabling me go through about 3 years’ worth of exams in merely a year, at an academic institution of serious repute, in a class that was a remarkably small size. Lecturers were not only industry experts, but the small class size always meant that the focus was always clear and I had a very sound understanding of the subject matter that was very handy during interviews. The faculty is extremely supportive not only in terms of the modules themselves but also in the search for a job, and overall the programme at UCC was a great decision.
