I got my degree in Actuarial Science at Cass Business School in 2016. My primary motivation to apply to one of the best known programmes at Cass was that it offered a placement year (a year of working in the industry full time). On top of that, the faculty had diverse experience and held networking events very often. We were taught by qualified actuaries who had themselves worked in the industry, therefore the application and knowledge was immense. And since the university was located in the heart of London, I had every reason to study at this university.
