The Institute of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science

At Kent’s Institute of Mathematics, Statistics & Actuarial Science we aim to provide programmes that reflect all aspects of mathematics. Our programmes are stimulating, relevant and up-to-date – just one of the many good reasons for coming to Kent.

Mathematics and Statistics

Mathematics is incredibly important to the modern world. All quantitative science, including both physical and social sciences, is based on it. It provides the theoretical framework for physical science, statistics and data analysis as well as computer science. The programmes offered by the Institute of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science reflect this diversity and the excitement generated by new discoveries within mathematics that affect not only the technicalities of science but also our general understanding of the world in which we live. The programmes share a common core of Mathematics at Stage 1 and then move on to cover abstract, analytical and computational techniques that give you the opportunity to specialise in areas such as nonlinear differential equations, computational algebra and geometry, financial mathematics, forecasting, design and analysis of experiments, inference and stochastic processes. Our teaching is led by research which is undertaken by staff at Kent who enjoy high international reputation as experts in their areas.

Actuarial Science

Actuaries deal with the evaluation and management of financial risks, particularly those associated with companies within the financial services industry. They form a small yet well respected and influential profession. Students from this course have also gone on to successful careers in other jobs such as accountancy, banking or operational research. If you are good at mathematics and you are curious about financial matters, you should enjoy studying actuarial science. The core actuarial science modules are taught by professionally qualified actuaries with many years practical experience in consultancy or the insurance industry. Our Institute is friendly and we place an emphasis on getting to know our students on a one-to-one basis.

Our degree gives you the opportunity to gain exemptions from eight of the professional examinations set by the UK Actuarial Profession. Our ’Invicta Actuarial Society’ provides a good meeting place for students, staff and other actuaries working in the Kent area, and a link with industry.

The University of Kent

The Canterbury campus is Kent's original site, founded in 1965. It is built on 300 acres of parkland overlooking Canterbury and is still growing and evolving. Modern buildings are surrounded by open green spaces, courtyards, gardens, ponds and woodland, and the view across Canterbury and the Stour valley all help to make it an attractive and friendly campus.

The campus is self-contained, which means that you are usually within walking distance of all the excellent facilities on offer: the Templeman Library, the Computing Service, the Medical Centre, the Sports Centre, the Gulbenkian Theatre complex including Cinema 3, the Students' Union including the Venue nightclub, the Campus Shop and bookshop, banks and cash points, bistros, bars, public access terminals, bus-stops and launderettes. Canterbury city centre is only 20 minutes walk away, or on a direct bus route.

There are approximately 11,000 students on campus, including undergraduates and postgraduates, plus lecturers, research staff, members of the local community and overseas students on a year abroad. With 130 nationalities represented, and approximately one third of all postgraduate students from countries outside the EU, the campus has a very cosmopolitan feel.

Campus life centres round four colleges, the Templeman Library, purpose-built science laboratories and teaching buildings, and the Students' Centre.

The four colleges at Kent are each named after distinguished British figures - Darwin, Eliot, Keynes and Rutherford. They are more than just halls of residence, because in addition to living, social and catering facilities they also house lecture theatres, seminar rooms, computer terminal rooms, and some academic departments.

All students and academic staff belong to a college, whether or not they live on campus. So you will have plenty of opportunity to meet people studying different subjects. The colleges give you access to a ready-made community from the moment you arrive at Canterbury.
