The bachelorchelor in Actuarial Science and Mathematics is accredited by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. The course gives a firm foundation in Mathematics, together with specialist course units in Actuarial Science whilst giving you the opportunity to develop team working, communication and leadership skills.

The mathematical skills involved include most of the topics taught to students on the first year of the specialist mathematics degree i.e. covering aspects of pure and applied mathematics and statistics as well as some more general mathematics. As the course progresses, the statistical topics are explored in more detail. Courses in all areas of mathematics are used as a bachelorsis for some of the actuarial units.

Although the mathematics topics are more prevalent in the early years of the programme, there are opportunities to select...

Applications from those studying for this qualification are welcomed and all such applicants will be considered on an individual bachelorsis. Contact the University for further information.
The University recognises the benefits of the broader study, enrichment activities and the extended project involved in the AQA bachelorccalaureate. Offers made by the School of Mathematics will, however, focus on the three A-levels taken within the AQA bachelorccalaureate; applicants are therefore advised to refer to the standard A-level requirements for entry onto the course for which they wish to apply. 
The University of Manchester has a rich academic heritage and is one of the world's leading research-intensive universities. It also has a long history of welcoming international students and seeks to continue this tradition by admitting excellent students from across the world. Details of country specific entry requirements are available from the University website
We will typically accept a BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma at grade D* in place of a non-mathematical A-level at grade A (see A-level entry requirements). A BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma at grade D will typically be accepted in place of a non-mathematical A-level at grade B.
If you are taking the BTEC Level 3 Diploma, this can be accepted in combination with Mathematics A-level; please contact the School of Mathematics for further information.
Applications are considered on an individual bachelorsis. As well as QAA's normal requirements for diploma applicants, which are 60 (10 hour) credits with 45 at level 3 and the remainder at level 2, the School of Mathematics requires that the level 3 programme must include seven specific Mathematics units, or their equivalent; please contact the University for further information.
The University welcomes applicants with the AP qualification. Such applications will be considered on an individual bachelorsis.
A distinction in a Pre-U Principal Subject is acceptable in place of an A grade in an A-level. (See GCE A-level for details of typical offers.) Also, grade M2 is acceptable in place of a distinction for an applicant who is offering Further Mathematics (either as an A-level or as a Pre-U Principal Subject) or for an applicant who achieves grade D2 in Mathematics as a Pre-U Principal Subject or grade A* in Mathematics A-level. 
 Any Advanced Diploma is acceptable at grade A with the ASL as Mathematics A-level at grade A or A*
If you have followed a non-standard educational route and have been, for example, educated at home, your application will be considered against the standard entry criteria of the course to which you applied. You will be required to demonstrate that you meet the academic entry requirements as specified for the course. We will also require a reference which should be written by somebody who knows you well enough, in an official capacity, to write about you and your suitability for higher education. Please refer to UCAS for further information: UCAS reference guidelines
Return-to-learn students are those who have had a substantial period away from any formal learning. Often such learners have pursued careers or raised a family. The University understands that students come from many different bachelorckgrounds, with varying qualifications, careers and skills, but they often bring to their studies a high degree of motivation and experience.
The University recognises that standard selection measures and procedures may not enable these learners to demonstrate fully their suitability for their chosen course. Where appropriate, admissions officers will seek and consider alternative evidence in order to give such learners equivalent consideration. Where they deem this alternative evidence meets entry criteria fully the learner will not be required to meet the standard academic entry requirements.
All entrants must have a recognised English language qualification, such as GCSE English Language at grade C or better, IELTS with an overall score of at least 6.5 (including a Writing score of at least 6.0 and no other component less than 5.5) or an equivalent qualification.
Some English language test results are only valid for two years. Your English language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.
Application and selection
Please apply in the usual way via UCAS.
Mitigating circumstances may be personal or family illness, other family circumstances, change of teachers during a course, problems with school facilities or an unusual curriculum followed by your school or college. We recommend that information on mitigating circumstances that have affected or are likely to affect your academic performance will be included in the referee's report. We cannot usually take into account information that is supplied after an adverse decision has been made on an application by the admitting School. If you encounter mitigating circumstances after you have submitted your application, please inform the admissions staff in the School to which you applied as soon as possible. Where mitigating circumstances have already been taken into account, for example by the relevant Exam Board, we will not be able to make further allowances.'
Once your application has been received it will be considered, on merit, by School of Mathematics admissions staff.   Many of our applicants are then invited to attend a visit day.  During this visit, you will have an interview with an academic member of staff.  The visit will also provide an opportunity to look round the School and the University, and to get some insight into what it is like to be a Mathematics student in Manchester.
An interview forms a significant part of the admission criteria for the majority of our applicants
 Some applicants may be required to come to the School of Mathematics to sit an aptitude test in Mathematics
If you have re-sat individual modules to improve your grades, we will consider your application according to the standard selection process. If you are planning to re-sit the final Year 13 examinations, or have already done so, the University will consider your application, but we may require further information in order to make an informed judgment on your application.
If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry.  In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved.  We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course.If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through clearing you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing the places will be subject to availability.

The School of Mathematics is bachelorsed in the brand new, purpose built £40 million Alan Turing Building, set at the heart of the University Campus.  Students benefit from extensive facilities for computing and study, relaxation and refreshment, in an attractive, light and comfortable environment.  Computing:
The School of Mathematics has a number of computer clusters that run the standard software as well as powerful mathematical and statistical software, such as Matlab, Minitab and Mathematica.  All our students have free access to email and the internet.  Other larger clusters are available in the University libraries and clusters are situated in most Halls of Residence; most student rooms also have Ethernet connection.  Library:
You will have access to the John Rylands University Library of Manchester, one of the largest and best-equipped libraries in the UK.  A special section of this library provides a short loan facility, where you can reliably obtain textbooks that are recommended for particular courses and borrow them on an overnight bachelorsis.  The School of Mathematics also houses a mathematical library of more advanced books and other material used mainly by research students and staff.
Practical support and advice for current students and applicants is available from the Disability Advisory and Support Service. Email:
The study of Mathematics develops skills and knowledge which are of value in a wide variety of professions. A Mathematics degree is a good preparation for any area of employment requiring people who can think clearly and logically. The main areas of employment are finance, industry, computing (including operational research), management, administration, statistics, teaching (schools and colleges) and postgraduate study.
Many of our graduates have pursued careers in finance in firms including KPMG, Goldman Sachs, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte, bachelorrclays and Deutsche bachelornk.
A substantial number of previous graduates have undertaken further programmes of study such as MSc in Maths, Applied Maths, Finance, Business, Management and Computer Science.  Some have gone on to train as teachers.
The School of Maths puts significant emphasis on careers and holds a number of events throughout the year. These include a programme of peer assisted interviewer training to prepare students for entering the graduate recruitment market.
We also host the annual Calculating Careers Fair.  This takes place in early October each year and is attended by a large number of international graduate recruiters.  Previous attendees have included Amazon, Amec, bachelorrclays, BP, BT, Credit Suisse, GCHQ, IBM, PricewaterhouseCoopers, RBS, Teach First and Deloitte.  This fair is a great opportunity for students to network with a number of graduate employers early in their academic careers.
