About

At Stellenbosch University the courses offered by the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, such as the Financial Risk Management programme, are designed to develop the skills needed by these professionals. Prospective students may choose from a number of degree programmes that opens the door to careers in Statistics, Actuarial Science and Financial Risk Management, among others. 

Overview

This Department, which offers the Financial Risk Management programme at the Stellenbosch University, is one of the oldest of its kind in South Africa. 

Quick Facts:

  • Ten years before it was founded in 1946, Statistics was already presented as a subject, but mainly for students in the commercial sciences. Because of this, the Department was established in the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences. Since then the number of environments needing tuition in statistics has increased rapidly. Since 1985, actuarial science has also been offered by the Department. Besides its academic responsibilities, the Department also houses the Centre for Statistical Consultation. The Centre provides a statistics support service to all the researchers of the University.
  • The number of students selected can be influenced by, for example, staff capacity and the availability of resources within the Department, as well as academic merit and University transformation objectives. As staff capacity and resources can fluctuate from year to year, the number of students selected can also differ from year to year.
