This event takes place on June 2nd from 2pm to 3.30pm and will give an insight into the work actuaries do. There are many areas of work covered so it will be very useful to students considering a career as an actuary.  In addition, information will be provided on a new additional area (Banking).  Banking is now an area in which student actuaries can choose their specialized exams and qualify in. You can register by clicking on "MAKE A RESERVATION".

Dr Martin Kerin, School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics, has had a research article published in the Annals of Mathematics, widely regarded as the top journal for pure mathematics in the world. The article, written in collaboration with Professor Sebastian Goette of the University of Freiburg and Professor Krishnan Shankar of the University of Oklahoma, resolves a question first asked around 60 years ago on the geometrical properties of seven-dimensional objects which very closely resemble spheres.
