Audience: University students (undergraduate and masters/postgraduate), student members of the Society of Actuaries in Ireland (SAI) and university lecturers.


This is an invaluable opportunity both for university students and SAI students and guests to gain an insight into the range of careers available within the actuarial profession.  Presentations will be given by recently qualified members of the Society and will cover the ‘traditional’ actuarial areas of Life & Healthcare, General Insurance, Reinsurance and Pensions & Investments, but also the careers available in non-traditional actuarial fields.  This year, we will also signpost university students to the new developments and roll-out of banking exams from the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries with exams due to take place in 2022. For further details about this development please also refer to the Student News (March 2021) feature which can be found at the link here.

Students may still be deciding which area is most suited to them.  The presentations will provide an excellent way to learn more about the range of potential careers available and an opportunity to listen to the advice offered by those who have recently qualified. There will be an online Questions & Answers session following the presentations.

  • Life & Healthcare
  • General Insurance
