Actuary is rated the best job of 2015 by CareerCast.com because it pays well and offers abundant opportunities for advancement.
The Australian National University has been teaching actuarial studies for almost thirty years and is now applying that expertise to providing the first online introduction to actuarial science course.
The course has been carefully designed for students from a wide variety of backgrounds, with secondary/high school level being the only assumption of mathematical background. Even if you don’t have any background in, for example, calculus, the course has been designed so you can skip over these sections without affecting your understanding of the rest of the course.
The course instructor is Dr Adam Butt, a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries of Australia, who has been teaching actuarial studies at ANU for over 10 years and won the College of Business & Economics Award for Teaching Excellence in 2013.
