Actuarial Sciences

Actuarial Sciences incorporates multi-disciplinary teaching, combining the expertise of the School of Computing Sciences, School of Mathematics, School of Economics and Norwich Business School to give our students a unique opportunity to pursue a stimulating and influential career as an actuary.

The Schools of Study at UEA teach thousands of undergraduate and postgraduate students each year across the four faculties of our campus in Norwich.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Actuarial Sciences.

If you haven’t already, check out our School pages on the UEA website.

In the meantime, don’t forget to Register Online to get access to your timetable once it becomes available, and log in to Blackboard our virtual learning environment.

Once you have registered online you will also need to attend a registration event (unless you are an undergraduate home student living in UEA accommodation, since you are registered automatically when you pick up your room keys)

  1. Dear Student          

    Welcome to the School of Computing Sciences (CMP), a School which is committed to excellence in Teaching, Research and Innovation. Our graduates are highly sought after by industry, government and commerce and our Research is of international standing. Although we are a large School, we remain a friendly School, aiming to provide a supportive environment in which you can learn and acquire new skills in one of the most exciting and rewarding disciplines offered.

    It’s going to be busy time for you, with many opportunities both within the School and the wider University, but we are certain that you will look back fondly on your time at UEA as one of the very best experiences of your life.

     

    Professor Gerard Parr

    Head of the School

Steps to Success - Getting started in your School of Study

Step One

You will have received an email from UEA confirming your place. Follow the links to register online and set up your IT account, username and password.

Step Two

Go to E:Vision to view your personalised timetable information. There will be UEA wide events for all students as well as our School events and activities.

Step Three

Go to the SCI Student Zone.This is our area for all Science students to find common and School only information. It is an important reference area not only in your first few weeks but also during all your time here. Right now, your School areas on the SCI Student Zone will also have more information about any essential or recommended reading for your course (if needed before you arrive) or if you have optional module choices to make in your first year, there will be some more information about that. Most Schools have a ‘New Student Information’ area but do take time to browse the other tabs, including the general Science Student Information tab. 

Follow these instructions once you have registered online:

  • Go to https://portal.uea.ac.uk/
  • Select BLACKBOARD from the 3 orange buttons towards the top of the screen
  • Type in your UEA username and password, and select Sign In
  • At the top right of the screen select SCI Student Zone

Step Four

Double check you have done all of above! Keep regularly checking your timetable and School Student Zones up to and during arrival week as sometimes things are added or rooms can change.


Actuarial Sciences is based within the School of Computing Sciences.
