Students must follow a programme of 120 credits comprising compulsory core subjects (69 credits), a specialized focus (30 credits) and elective courses (21 credits). The core subjects includes compulsory subjects, additional subjects determined by the Jury according to the degree held by the applicant, and a master thesis with or without an internship (15 credits). The specialized focus consists in advanced courses of actuarial science and related disciplines.
Thanks to an active collaboration between KULeuven, ULB and UCLouvain actuarial master programmes, UCLouvain students attend advanced classes in KULeuven or ULB, and vice-versa. The courses shared by the three universities are taught in English, the rest of the UCLouvain programme being taught in French.
A maximum of 50 credits may be accredited to students who already have a second cycle degree or who are working professionally and who have a good foundation and/or professional experience in actuarial science.
For a programme-type, and regardless of the focus, options/or elective courses selected, this master will carry a minimum of 120 credits divided over two annual units, corresponding to 60 credits each.
