After your Bachelor's

With your Bachelor's degree in Actuarial Science you gain automatic entry into the Master’s programme in Actuarial Science and Mathematical Finance, or you can specialise further in a specific discipline.

You can take a Master's programme at the UvA's Amsterdam School of Economics or at another university. Whichever Master's programme you choose, it will add necessary depth to your knowledge.

Master in Actuarial Science and Mathematical Finance

You can further specialise in actuarial science by taking the 1-year, English-language Master's programme in Actuarial Science and Mathematical Finance. In this programme, you can choose from 2 tracks: the General track (preparing you for the post-Master’s programme) or the Quantitative Risk Management track (preparing you for a career in risk management).

Other Master's programmes

During your Bachelor's programme, did you take a minor in a specific discipline? If so, you may be eligible for admission to the Master's programmes relating to that discipline. For some of these, certain admission requirements apply. For example, with a Bachelor's degree in Actuarial Science, you can also be admitted to the Master's programme in Econometrics, provided your electives are compatible.

Career in research

If you are interested in a scientific career after completing your Master's, you can conduct research and pursue a doctorate at the university.
