Admission

Successful enrolment in our programme is subject to a number of admission requirements. Participants having completed a strongly focused quantitative scientific bachelor’s or master’s education -with electives or compulsory courses in life and non-life insurance and quantitative finance- can directly be admitted to EMAS (BSc Actuarial Science, MSc EOR actuarial track).

 

In other cases, participants will be required to first complete a premaster (see PrEMAS) to get the academic and technical skills and actuarial knowledge needed for admission to EMAS.

 

Two ways to become an actuary at the Actuarial Instituut

  1. MSc Route – leads to an official accredited NVAO Master of Science degree:
    - If required: premaster courses
    - All courses and cases with a maximum of three course exemptions (max. 13 ECTS)*
    - Master’s thesis is mandatory
     
  2. AI Route – leads to an ‘AI-diploma’:
    - If required: premaster courses
    - Exemptions possible for all courses; no case exemptions*
    - Exemption possible for Master’s thesis*

 

Similarities between the two routes:

 

  1. Part-time study
  2. Premaster courses are modular
  3. Same curriculum
  4. Master programme = cohort: you start the study with the same group (except the exemptions) as you finish it.
  5. Both the EMAS MSc degree as the ‘AI-diploma’ are accepted at the Koninklijk Actuarieel Genootschap (AG) to become a member of the AG and, subsequently, to be awarded the AAG title.

 

Differences between the two routes:

 

MSc route AI-route
Admission requirement: bachelor degree Admission requirement: MSc degree with an actuarial thesis
Master’s thesis is mandatory Master’s thesis is exempted
Maximum of exemptions

Maximum of exemptions

No maximum of course exemptions (cases are mandatory)

*All exemptions are subject to the approval by the Board of Examiners. Requests for exemption of courses and/or the master’s thesis will be granted where appropriate. Please be referred to the Onderwijs- en Examenregeling (OER) for further details.

Modules

Five courses, six cases, one thesis

The body of knowledge is taught by academic lecturers from leading universities in five courses and six cases. The thesis constitutes proof of your individual qualities and of your ability to carry out an analysis of a specific topic.

 

Depending on the nature of the course, lectures may be combined with e.g. computer sessions or group discussions. These discussions focus on integrating academic knowledge into your everyday practice, to stimulate further reflection. In addition to attending the classroom sessions, you are required to study course material and to complete homework assignments.
