The BSc Actuarial Science offered by the Department of Statistics is officially level one accredited with the Actuarial Society of South Africa (ASSA). The accreditation makes UJ one of the few South African universities accredited with the ASSA, which is the governing body for the actuarial profession in South Africa. Formally introduced in 2018, UJ’s BSc Actuarial Science qualification offers an excellent opportunity for students to study toward becoming qualified actuaries. Congratulations to the department, including the department’s actuaries, Mrs Leila Lederman and Mr Soshan Soobramoney.
