Entry Requirements

Applicants will normally be expected to have a very good foundation in mathematics and/or statistics and should have the equivalent of an Irish 2.1 honours degree in a quantitative area such as mathematics, statistics, computer science, engineering or economics and/or finance. We will however consider applications from prospective students who do not meet these entry requirements provided they can demonstrate an ability and commitment to study actuarial science. UCD reserves the right to analyse applications in the context of a student’s degree performance in subjects directly linked to Actuarial Science and make an admissions decision on this basis.
