Organisation profile

We are a world-leading centre of teaching and research in actuarial mathematics, financial mathematics, risk management, probability and statistics. We were the first in the UK to offer a specialised programme in actuarial mathematics, and all our actuarial programmes are fully accredited by the UK actuarial profession.

Fingerprint The fingerprint is based on mining the text of the scientific documents related to the associated persons. Based on that an index of weighted terms is created, which defines the key subjects of research unit
