  • What is the difference between Actuarial Science and Econometrics?

    In both Actuarial Science and Econometrics mathematics, statistics, and economics have focus. Actuarial Science is more about understanding and managing financial risks, especially in insurance and finance. Econometrics is concerned with analysing and making sense of economic relationships from a broader perspective. Goal is to help organisations in making better business and policy decisions.

  • Does the UvA organise networking events?

    The VSAE (study association for all students of Actuarial Science and Econometrics) organises many study-related events and projects. Throughout the year they organise multiple career events in which you can have personal conversations with recruiters and participate in workshops.

  • What does online education look like at the moment?

    In general, education activities for all students are currently online. We organise several activities so you can meet your fellow students and feel at home at the university. It goes without saying that we cannot predict what the situation will be like when the new academic year starts in September 2021. In any case, if necessary, we are prepared to offer students interactive online education in a variety of formats, along with a wide range of social activities.
