The BSc (Actuarial and Applied Statistics) degree is for students who decide part way through their BSc (Actuarial Science) degree that they will probably not continue their studies to becoming an Actuary and wish to broaden their degree to include more statistical units.

Some units within this course may provide students with the opportunity to meet some of the requirements of professional accreditation with the Institute of Actuaries of Australia.
